Speaking Sparkles--When You Look Back on Your Life

Colin Powell
That night I took off the uniform for the last time. In the years I had worn it, I had benefited beyond my wildest hopes from all that is good in this country, and I had overcome its lingering1 faults. I had found something to do with my life that was honorable2, useful, and that I could do well, and that I loved doing. That is rare good fortune in anyone’s life. My only regret was that I could not do it all over again.

Mary J. Blige
I have the strength. You know I have everything; I’m equipped. When you finally understand who you are, ages 6 through 60 will understand who you are because when they see a person, that’s come through all that I’ve come through, still standing3, it’s amazing.
No more drama,  everybody/ I know that we are not invincible/ but can we at least make a positive 1)confession4 over our life/ and say no more/ say no more/ say no more/ say no more/ no more, no more...

Isabella Rossellini
There was a period actually in my life, where I was lost about what to do and I think that’s when, modeling came about, which was something that I always said "no” to because I thought it’s, uh, 2)objectifying women, I don’t want to be part of it, but I was 28, I didn’t know what to do so I start modeling, never thinking that it was going to be, maybe, the most successful of the career that I’ve had. I regret it ‘ause I start modeling at 28. I could have started at 16 and have 12 more years of it. And after a certain age, you know, there is just less spots there. They, they just don’t write for women in their 50s and I’m 48 and so I thought, you know, instead of just, complain about there isn’t roles, but there are other things in life that I like and one of them was 3)cosmetic5. And one thing that is good about getting old, I mean maybe I lose my looks but you become so bold6, you have the courage of your action, you can start a business.

注释:
1) confession [kEn5feFEn] n. 坦白,承认
2) objectify [Cb5dVektifai] v. 使客体化,使客观化
3) cosmetic [kCz5metik] n. 化妆品

妙语连珠——回首人生时……

柯林·鲍威尔
那天晚上我最后一次脱下制服。穿着它的这些年里,我得益于这个国家的所有优点,收获胜过我最高的期望,同时也克服了其挥之不去的缺陷。我找到了自己的人生应该从事的工作,这项工作光荣、有益,我有能力胜任,而且热衷其中。那在任何人的生命中都是极为难得的福气。我唯一的遗憾是不能重新经历一次了。

玛丽·布莱姬
我具备这种能力。你知道我万事俱备、整装待发。当你最后明白自己是怎样的人,年龄从六岁到六十岁的人都会明白你是怎样的人,因为当他们见到一个人经历过如我所经历过的一切,仍然屹立不倒时,都会惊叹不已。
各位,不再是演戏了/我知道我们并非不可超越/然而能否至少对自己的人生中肯评述/并诉说不再了/诉说不再了/诉说不再了/诉说不再了/不再了,不再了……

伊莎贝拉·罗西里尼
我的一生中就有这么一个时期,我不知何去何从,我想就是此时模特儿这个职业进入我的生活。以前我从不考虑这个职业,因为我觉得它贬低了女性,我不想参与其中,但是我已经二十八岁了,我不知道做什么好,于是我开始当模特,从没有想过当模特会,也许,是我所从事过的最为成功的事业。我感到很遗憾,因为我二十八岁才开始当模特,我应该十六岁就去做,这样我就可以多干十二年了。过了某个年龄,你知道,出现在镜头前的机会就会减少。他们不会为五十多岁的女人写剧本,而我四十八了。因而,我没有抱怨适合我的戏份太少,我想,你知道,人生中还有其它我喜欢的东西,其中一样就是化妆品。日渐衰老的一个好处就是,我是说可能我失去了美貌,但人变得大胆了,拥有了大胆尝试的勇气并且能够开始创业。
