我曾七次鄙视自己的灵魂

纪伯伦

第一次,当它本可进取时,却故作谦卑;

第二次,当它在空虚时,用爱欲来填充;

第三次,在困难和容易之间,它选择了容易;

第四次,它犯了错,却借由别人也会犯错来宽慰自己;

第五次,因软弱而忍耐,并把这种忍耐归于坚强而聊以慰藉;

第六次,当它鄙夷一张丑恶的嘴脸时,却不知那正是自己面具中的一副;

第七次,唱起颂歌,还以美德自诩。

Seven times have Idespised my soul

Kahlil Gibran

The first time when I saw her being meek that she might attain height.

The second time when I saw her limping before the crippled.

The third time when she was given to choose between the hard and the easy, and she chose the easy.

The fourth time when she committed a wrong, and comforted herself that others also commit wrong.

The fifth time when she forbore for weakness, and attributed her patience to strength.

The sixth time when she despised the ugliness of a face, and knew not that it was one of her own masks.

And the seventh time when she sang a song of praise, and deemed it a virtue.
