Two Gentlemen of Verona

SPEED Marry, by these special marks: first, you have
learned, like Sir Proteus, to wreathe your arms,
like a malecontent; to relish a love-song, like a
robin-redbreast; to walk alone, like one that had
the pestilence; to sigh, like a school-boy that had
lost his A B C; to weep, like a young wench that had
buried her grandam; to fast, like one that takes
diet; to watch like one that fears robbing; to
speak puling, like a beggar at Hallowmas. You were
wont, when you laughed, to crow like a cock; when you
walked, to walk like one of the lions; when you
fasted, it was presently after dinner; when you
looked sadly, it was for want of money: and now you
are metamorphosed with a mistress, that, when I look
on you, I can hardly think you my master.

« Macbeth » Act I. Scene VII 一段


William Shakespeare 的« Macbeth » Act I. Scene VII

之一段 最近查兩單字 trammelsurcease
覺得問題不小 應該留紀錄供日後參考

MACBETH. If it were done when 'tis done, then 'twere well
It were done quickly. If the assassination
Could trammel up the consequence, and catch,
With his surcease, success; that but this blow
Might be the be-all and the end-all -here,
But here, upon this bank and shoal of time,
We'ld jump the life to come....



如果這事做成了就算完事那麼這事是愈 快做成愈妙:如其此番暗殺能把後患一網打盡於暗殺完成之時便算穩獲勝利: 如其只此一擊便可實現一生懷抱我僅僅說這一生在這時間之海的淺瀨上 --那麼我們寧可冒了死後的危險而不惜一試了 (註)
