English term or phrase: ask for sentence translation
The sentence like this:" No man sees all that he sees, but before you're gunslingers---those of you who don't go west,that is---you'll see more in one single glance than some men see in a lifetime."

How to translate the sentence in Chinese?

Thank you.

Chinese translation:It's cowboy talk
Explanation:
没有人能见到进入视野的一切,但成为一个枪手后就不同了--若是你们之中看不见一切的都到西部去的话--你们在那里可以从一瞟视中见到比某些人一辈子所见到的还多。

It was the voice of Cort in his head.
Listen to me, maggots. Listen for your lives, for that's what it could mean some day. You never see all that you see. One of the things they send you to me for is to show you what you don't see in what you see - what you don't see when you're scared, or fighting, or running...No man sees all that he sees, but before you're gunslingers...you'll see more in one single glance than some men see in a lifetime. And some of what you don't see in that glance you'll see afterwards, in the eye of your memory - if you live long enough to remember, that is. Because the difference between seeing and not seeing can be the difference between living and dying.

通俗些:

没有人能够一下明了所有进入视野的事务全局和细节的,除非你成为一个(神)枪手--假若你们这些看不到全局和细节的人赴美国西部的话--你们在那里可以(练得)一瞟就明了一切,比某些人一辈子所见识的还多
