也不知道為什麼?只是突然有一天就迷上作皂....“一些些冒險犯難的精神+期待皂化過程的小焦慮”就這樣一發不可收拾....
持續、緩慢、製皂中...沒作品時,整理整理過去或現在出走的紀錄,當成自己的回憶錄;或者把看過、挺有感覺的書分享分享心得...還沒設置留言版,如果有話想跟Jess說的,任何一篇文章下面回應,Jess都看得到哦~

小王子 Le Petit Prince‧Chap20



小王子在沙丘、岩石和雪地上走了很久之後,終於走到一條路上,而這條路是通往有人居住的地方。

在他面前是一座花園,花園裡開滿了玫瑰花,小王子說:「早安?」。

「早安!」玫瑰花說。

小王子凝視著那些花,她們全都長得跟他的那朵花一模一樣,他愣住了。接著詫異地問:「你們是誰啊?」

「我們是玫瑰花。」那些玫瑰花們回答。

小王子感到非常憂傷,因為他的花曾經告訴他:她是全宇宙唯一的玫瑰花;然而現在光是這一座花園裡,就有五千朵跟她一模一樣的花。

他對自己說:「如果她看見了眼前的一切,她會很懊惱,然後為了怕被嘲笑,她會不停的咳嗽,假裝自己快咳死了。而我則有義務要假裝照料她,直到她起死回生,如果我不屈服、不這樣做的話,她會讓自己真的死去...」

然後小王子有感而發的說:「我曾自以為擁有世界上最獨特的花而覺得富有,其實我擁有的只不過是一朵平凡的玫瑰花而已,那朵普通的花跟那三座只到我膝蓋那麼高的火山(其中一座也許永遠不會再爆發了),這些...並不能使我成為偉大的王子...」

於是小王子伏在草地上哭了。




But it happened that after walking for a long time through sand, and rocks, and snow, the little prince at last came upon a road. And all roads lead to the abodes of men.
"Good morning," he said.
He was standing before a garden, all a-bloom with roses.
"Good morning," said the roses.
The little prince gazed at them. They all looked like his flower.
"Who are you?" he demanded, thunderstruck.
"We are roses," the roses said.
And he was overcome with sadness. His flower had told him that she was the only one of her kind in all the universe. And here were five thousand of them, all alike, in one single garden!
"She would be very much annoyed," he said to himself, "if she should see that . . . She would cough most dreadfully, and she would pretend that she was dying, to avoid being laughed at. And I should be obliged to pretend that I was nursing her back to life--for if I did not do that, to humble myself also, she would really allow herself to die. . ."
Then he went on with his reflections: "I thought that I was rich, with a flower that was unique in all the world; and all I had was a common rose. A common rose, and three volcanoes that come up to my knees--and one of them perhaps extinct forever . . . That doesn't make me a very great prince . . ."
And he lay down in the grass and cried.
