Excerpt from The Power of One by Bryce Courtenay.

“Life is all

beginnings and ends. Nothing stays the same, lad,” my granpa said at last. Then he puffed at his pipe and seemed to be examining his fingernails, which were broken and dirty from gardening. “Parting, losing the thing we love the most, that’s the whole business of life, that’s what it’s mostly about.”

    “人生是所有的起始和所有的终结。没有什么可以一成不变,小家伙” 爷爷最后说。然后他抽了口烟斗,好像在检查他的指甲,那又脏又破的劳动过的指甲。“分离,失去我们的最爱,这就是人生,人生大概就是这样的吧。”
