    But time...how time first grounds us and then confounds us. We thought we are being responsible when we were only being safe. What we called realism turned out to be a way of avoiding things rather than facing them.Time ... give us enough time and our best-supported decisions will seem wobbly, our certainties whimsical.

    We live in time—it holds us and moulds us—but I’ve never felt I understood it very well. And I'm not referring to theories about how it bends and doubles back, or may exist somewhere else in parallel versions. No, I mean ordinary, everyday time, which clocks and watches assure us passes regularly: tick-tock, click-clock. Is there anything more plausible than a second hand? And yet it takes only...

    侧耳倾听 (山高月小,水落石出。)

    Not just pure, but also applied intelligence. I found myself comparing my life againt Adrian's. The ability to see and examine himself; the ability to make moral decisions and act on them; the mental and physical courage of his suicide. “He took his own life" in the phrase; but Adrian also took charge of his own life, the took command of it, he took it in his hands—and then out of them. How ...

    I wasn't exactly a virgin, just in case you were wondering, Between school and university I had a couple of instructive episodes, whose excitements were greater than the mark they left. So what happened subsequently made me feel all the odder: the more you liked a girl, and the better matched you were, the less your chance of sex, it seemed. Unless, of course--and this is a thought I didn't art...

    ...We knew from our reading of great literature that Love involved Suffering, and would happily have got in some practice at Suffering if there was an implicit, perhaps even logical, promise that Love might be on its way. This was another of our fears: that Life wouldn't turn out to be like Literature. Look at our parents-we there the stuff of Literature? At best, they might aspire to the condi...

    Hunt gave a brief nod to Colin's attempt to undermine everything, as if morbid disbelief was a natural by-product of adolescence, something to be grown out of. Masters and parents used to remind us irritatingly that they too had once been young, and so could speak with authority. It's just a phase, they would insist. You'll grow out of it; life will teach you reality and realism. But back then ...

    In those days, we imagined ourselves as being kept in some kind of holding pen, waiting to be released into our lives. And when that moment came, our lives-- and time itself-- would speed up. How were we to know that our lives had in any case begun, that some advantages had already been gained, some damage already inflicted? Also, that our release would only be into a larger holding pen, whose ...

    What did I know of life, I who had live so carefully? Who had neither won nor lost, but just let life happen to him? Who had the usual ambitions and settled all too quickly for them not being realised? Who avoided being hurt and called it a capacity for survival? Who paid his bills, stayed on good terms with everyone as far as possible, for whom ecstasy and despair soon became just words once r...

    How did people in the old days bear it when letters took so long to arrive? I suppose three weeks waiting for the postman then must equate to three days waiting for an email. How long can three days feel? Long enough for a full sense of reward.
