Paris.Hilton语录跻身牛津辞典

 

奥斯卡·王尔德,威廉·莎士比亚,孔子,你在《牛津名言辞典》中读到他们的名言了吗?现在帕丽斯·希尔顿语录又跻身其中。

Oscar Wilde, William Shakespeare, Confucius - and Paris Hilton.

帕丽斯语录入选牛津“名言堂”,这看上去显得颇为另类。但编录《牛津名言辞典》的专家们认为,作为社会名流,帕里斯以花边新闻著称于世,她的影响力要比诗歌大得多。她的语录被载入新版的“名言堂”中,这也是情理之中。

Not exactly a likely grouping, but the experts compiling the Oxford Dictionary of Quotations believe the socialite more famous for porn than poetry is worthy of an entry into the newest edition of the compilation of memorable utterances.

第七版《牛津名言辞典》增订了两万条名人名句。帕丽斯以一句“无论到哪儿都要打扮俏丽。生命短暂,何苦从众”风光入选。

Hilton`s observation: "Dress cute wherever you go, life is too short to blend in" is one of 20,000 new quotations to make it into the seventh edition of the renowned list of the world`s memorable sayings.

除了帕里斯的经典语录外,去年在美国大选中惜败的副总统候选人莎拉·佩林也有个性语录入选其中:“一名会打曲棍球的妈妈和一头公牛有什么区别?口红。”

As well as Hilton`s wise words, unsuccessful US vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin also had her prognostications preserved for posterity: "What`s the difference between a hockey mom and a pitbull? Lipstick."

为了更多地收录21世纪的智慧名言,这本具有65年历史的书籍将来自科学家史蒂芬·霍金、美国总统巴拉克·奥巴马以及已故娱乐主持人兼爵士乐大师汉弗莱·列堤顿的语录都收入其中。

Attempting to bring more 21st century wit and wisdom into the book`s 65-year history, new quotes come from scientist Stephen Hawking, US President Barack Obama and late comedy host and jazzman Humphrey Lyttelton.

《牛津名言辞典》的主编伊丽莎白·诺丽斯表示,随着地球村概念不断地深入人心,传媒先驱马歇尔·麦克卢汉的名言也收录其中,这意味着年代久远的名人名言与当代读者之间开始变得熟悉起来。

The book`s editor, Elizabeth Knowles, said the continuing spread of the global village, to quote media guru Marshall McLuhan, meant quotes from the past sometimes become familiar to new audiences.

诺丽斯还说:“今天我们所收录的这些名人名言,不管是亲口说的还是电子合成的(科学家霍金只能通过这种方式“说”),迟早会被全球的人们所认识。”

"Anything quoted today, verbally or `written` in electronic form, can be and probably will be encountered by people all over the globe," Ms Knowles said.

“随着网络资源的不断更新,越来越多年代久远的名言对我们当下而言同样具有借鉴意义。最新版的名言辞典恰恰反映出这些变化所带来的影响。”

"And as more data is added to online sources, more voices from the past find a route to us today. The new edition of the dictionary reflects the impact of these changes."

对于自己的语句此次入选“名言堂”,希尔顿小姐表现得很淡然,她在其Twitter主页上写到:“不错!我有一句被辞典引用的话了。”

Ms Hilton`s reaction to her inclusion was typically clipped, posted on her Twitter page: "So cool that I have a quote in the dictionary."
