#200 The Catcher in the Rye

J.D. 沙林傑《麥田捕手》/J.D. Salinger's The Catcher In the Rye:
「無論如何,我總是會想像,有那麼一群小孩子在一大片麥田裡玩遊戲。成千上萬個小孩子,附近沒有一個人——沒有一個大人,我是說——除了我。我呢,就站在那混帳懸崖邊。我的職務是在那裡守備,要是有哪個孩子往懸崖邊跑來,我就把他捉住——我是說孩子們都在狂奔,也不知道自己是往哪裡跑,我得從什麼地方出來,把他們捉住。我從早到晚就在做這件事。我只想當個麥田捕手。我知道這有點異想天開,但我真正想做的就是這個。 」 
"Anyway, I keep picturing all these little kids playing some game in this big field of rye and all. Thousands of little kids, and nobody’s around - nobody big, I mean - except me. And I’m standing on the edge of some crazy cliff. What I have to do, I have to catch everybody if they start to go over the cliff - I mean if they’re running and they don’t look where they’re going I have to come out from somewhere and catch them. That’s all I do all day. I’d just be the catcher in the rye and all. I know it’s crazy, but that’s the only thing I’d really like to be."
