    原苹果公司创始人史蒂夫·乔布斯的唯一授权传记《史蒂夫·乔布斯传》在全球同步上市。书中收录了乔布斯在结婚20周年之际写给妻子的情书片段,言辞质朴,感人至深。下面就是这封情书的片段,译文出自于《史蒂夫·乔布斯传》的简体中文版(中信出版社):

We didn't know much about each other twenty years ago. We were guided by our intuition; you swept me off my feet.

20 年前我们相知不多。我们跟着感觉走,你让我着迷得飞上了天。

It was snowing when we got married at the Ahwahnee. Years passed, kids came, good times, hard times, but never bad times. Our love and respect has endured and grown.

当我们在阿瓦尼举行婚礼时天在下雪。很多年过去了,有了孩子们,有美好的时候,有艰难的时候,但从来没有过糟糕的时候。我们的爱和尊敬经历了时间的考验而且与日俱增。

We've been through so much together and here we are right back where we started 20 years ago -- older and wiser -- with wrinkles on our faces and hearts.

我们一起经历了那么多,现在我们回到20 年前开始的地方——老了,也更有智慧了——我们的脸上和心上都有了皱纹。

We now know many of life's joys, sufferings, secrets and wonders and we're still here together. My feet have never returned to the ground.

我们现在了解了很多生活的欢乐、痛苦、秘密和奇迹,我们依然在一起。我的双脚从未落回地面。

当我们在阿瓦尼举行婚礼时,雪花漫天飞舞。时光荏苒,岁月如梭,孩子们的降生,那些美好的时光,那些艰难的时刻,仍历历在目,而我们却从未经历不堪的年华;我们彼此的珍爱和尊重在岁月里沉淀发酵,与时俱浓。

We've been through so much together and here we are right back where we started 20 years ago -- older and wiser -- with wrinkles on our faces and hearts.

我们曾一起经历诸多风雨,阅尽世间沧桑。20年后,旧地重游,我们更苍老了,更睿智了,岁月的印记也在我们的脸上和心中留下皱褶。

我们终于明白,生命中的那些快乐、痛苦、秘密和奇迹意味着什么;正因如此,我们依然携手共渡。而身在云端的我,双脚一如既往,从未踏回世间!

我的译文:

忆二十年前,彼此始相见;

天意与神旨,相互把手牵。

阿瓦尼圣殿,飞雪鉴婚礼;

岁月呢喃过,儿女绕膝前;

辉煌伴艰辛,遗憾素无缘;

真爱从无改,敬意存心间。

廿年眨眼间,往事犹昨天,

岁月催吾老,智慧蕴心田。

饱尝喜与悲,誓言化神奇;

但愿人长久,伴君在云端。
