一种错觉 An Illusion

It is an illusion that youth is happy, an illusion of those who have lost it; but the young know they are wretched, for they are full of the truthless ideals which have been instilled into them, and each time they come in contact with the real, they are bruised and wounded. It looks as if they were victims of a conspiracy; for the books they read, ideal by the necessity of selection, and the conversation of their elders, who look back upon the past through a rosy haze of forgetfulness, prepare them for an unreal life.

认为青春是快乐的,这是一种错觉,是那些失去青春的人的错觉。但青年们知道他们是可悲的,因为他们被灌输了不真实的东西,头脑中充斥着理想主义,每一次他们遇到现实,他们就会被伤得体无完肤。看起来他们仿佛是一场阴谋的受害者;因为他们所读的书是经必要挑选而留下的。长辈们总是透过健忘这层玫瑰色的薄雾来追忆过去,在与青年人的谈话中为他们不真实的生活做好了准备。

They must discover for themselves that all they have read and all they have been told are lies, lies, lies; and each discovery is another nail driven into the body on the cross of life. The strange thing is that each one who has gone through that bitter disillusionment adds to it in his turn, unconsciously, by the power within him which is stronger than himself.

青年人必须自己发现他们的所读所听都是谎言,谎言,还是谎言;而且每个发现都是钉入身体的钉子,把他们钉在生活这个十字架上。奇怪的是,每个经历这种痛苦觉醒的人,都会不自觉地被超出自己的力量所左右,为之又增添了错觉。
