My Debt in Life
生命的亏欠
Selma Lagerf
塞尔玛·拉格洛夫
A few days ago I was sitting in the train, bound for Stockholm. It was early evening; there was little light in my compartment and none at all outside. My fellow passengers were dozing in their respective corners, and I was very quiet, listening to the rattling of the train.
几天前,我坐在火车上,前往斯德哥尔摩。天刚入夜,车厢内光线幽暗,车外已是一片漆黑。同车的旅客在各自的角落里打瞌睡,我静静地坐着,听着火车喀嚓喀嚓地行进。
And then I began to think of all the other times I had come up to Stockholm. It had usually been to do something difficult -- to pass examinations or to find a publisher for my manuscript. And now I was coming to receive the Nobel Prize in Literature. That, too, I thought would be difficult.
这时,我开始回想过去前往斯德哥尔摩的一桩桩往事。通常都是些劳神费力的事——去考试或是为书稿找出版商。这次,我是去领“诺贝尔文学奖”的,但我想这也绝不轻松。
Deep within me, however, was a great joy at receiving this Prize, and I tried to get rid of my anxiety by thinking of those who would rejoice at my good fortune. There were my good friends, my brothers and sisters and, first and foremost my old mother who, sitting back home, was happy to have lived to see this day.
不过,在内心深处,我还是会因为得奖而欣喜。我想着那些会为我的好运而高兴的人们,以此来排遣自己的焦虑心情。我的好朋友,我的兄弟姐妹,都会为我高兴,最重要的是,我年迈的母亲,坐在家中,也会很高兴她能活着看到这一天。
