Since this world we are not satisfied with

既然这个世界我们并不满意

我们就给自己创造一个世界

让不知名的力量把我们带上不知名的道路

沿着不知名的道路走向不知名的大门

–1988年张永杰、程远忠:《第四代人》

Since this world we are not satisfied with

We will create another world for ourselves

Let the unknown force take us to the unknown path

Along the unknown path to the unknown grand entrance

— Translated from a popular book in China in the 1980s: The Fourth Generation

Rules

Posted October 3rd, 2009 and filed in Life

The world is my playground, though it took me many years to learn the rules. Many of the rules are hidden. Those explicit are often false. Actually, there aren’t that many rules. There are a few iron laws. The rest is left to you to define. Seeing through the false rules and breaking them are part of the fun, not known to those serious people.
