O, 'tis too true!

How smart a lash that speech doth give my conscience!

The harlot's cheek, beautied with plastering art,

Is not more ugly to the thing that helps it

Than is my deed to my most painted word:

O heavy burthen!

(From Hamlet Act 3 Scene 1, Shakespeare)


啊,这句话是太真实了!

它在我的良心上抽了多么重的一鞭!

涂脂抹粉的娼妇的脸,

还不及掩藏在虚伪的言辞后面的我的行为更丑恶。

难堪的重负啊!
