「我離港前到過一間精神科醫院。當時有位病人禮貌地問,一個以作為世上最悠久民主政體而自傲的國家,如何能夠將此地交給一個政治制度非常不同的國家,且既沒諮詢當地公民,又沒給予他們民主的前景,好讓他們捍衞自己的將來。一個隨行同事說,奇怪,香港提出最理智問題的人,竟在精神科醫院。」彭定康 金融時報

“During a visit to a mental hospital before I left Hong Kong, a patient politely asked me how a country that prided itself on being the oldest democracy in the world had come to be handing over his city to another country with a very different system of government, without either consulting the citizens or giving them the prospect of democracy to safeguard their future. Strange, said one of my aides, that the man with the sanest question in Hong Kong is in a mental hospital.”Chris Patten Financial Times

寂靜之聲

寂靜之聲



The Sound of Silence 《Simon and Garfunkel》

Hello darkness, my old friend
I've come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping
And the vision that was planted
In my brain still remains
Within the sound of silence

In restless dreams, I walked alone
Narrow streets of cobblestone
'Neath the halo of a street lamp
I turned my collar to the cold and damp
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash
Of a neon light that split the night
And touched the sound of silence

And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people, maybe more
People talking without speaking
People hearing without listening
People writing songs that voices
Never share and no one dared
Disturb the sound of silence

"Fools", said I, "You do not know
Silence like a cancer grows
Hear my words that I might teach you
Take my arms that I might reach you"
But my words, like silent raindrops fell
And echoed in the wells of silence

And the people bowed and prayed
To the neon god they made
And the sign flashed out its warning
In the words that it was forming
And the sign said,
The words of the prophets are written
On the subway walls and tenement halls
And whispered in the sounds of silence"


點擊 試聽 The sound of Silence MP3 版本



有時有甚麽想不通的,祇要停下來,摒棄一切的聲音,讓寂靜進入腦袋。就好像電腦有時太多的程式在運行,突然 Hang 了機,祇要把電腦熄掉,洗去一切運行中的程式,靜一靜下來,之後再 "Reboot",電腦就恢復正常運行。


人是有是需要靜下來的,若耳根不靜,週圍黑白天哦,不停吵吵鬧鬧,怎能忍受呢? 在寂靜之時,可以思考,也可以甚麽都不想,讓腦袋片刻休息。


但既然是“The Sound of Silence” 怎麼又會是一首歌來?仲喺有埋歌詞 。。。。。。!

我的舊文好聽的歌:
雨和淚
雨中哭泣
惡水上的橋
自我的世界

That's because ppl are hearing without listening ..... 有等於無!

hari big brother,聽而不聞 hearing without listening 也何以解得通! 謝謝!

有沒有”視而不見“ 同義的呢? seeing without recognizing 可以嗎?

以便兄:歌詞意義深奧! 我祗能略明一點點,還望兄台不圇指點指導賜教!
