Newly translated (1955 by Albert C. Outler, Ph.D., Doctor of Divinity) Jul 24




https://www.ling.upenn.edu/courses/hum100/augustinconf.pdf



BOOK ELEVEN
CHAPTER XIV

17. There was no time, therefore, when thou hadst not made anything, because thou hadst made time itself. And there are no times that are coeternal with thee, because thou dost abide forever, but if times should abide, they would not be times.

For what is time? Who can easily and briefly explain it? Who can even comprehend it in thought or put the answer into words? Yet is it not true that in conversation we refer to nothing more familiarly or knowingly than time? And surely we understand it when we speak of it; we understand it also when we hear another speak of it.

What, then, is time? If no one asks me, I know what it is. If I wish to explain it to him who asks me, I do not know. Yet I say with confidence that I know that if nothing passed away, there would be no past time; and if nothing were still coming, there would be no future time; and if there were nothing at all, there would be no present time.

But, then, how is it that there are the two times, past and future, when even the past is now no longer and the future is now not yet? But if the present were always present, and did not pass into past time, it obviously would not be time but eternity. If, then, time present — if it be time — comes into existence only because it passes into time past, how can we say that even this is, since the cause of its being is that it will cease to be? Thus, can we not truly say that time is only as it tends toward nonbeing?







IMHO, this quote of St. Augustine's is easier to understand when put into context. ...

The Garden of Forking Paths Aug 8



...“The Garden of Forking Paths is an enormous riddle, or parable, whose theme is time; this recondite cause prohibits its mention. To omit a word always, to resort to inept metaphors and obvious periphrases, is perhaps the most emphatic way of stressing it. That is the tortuous method preferred, in each of the meanderings of his indefatigable novel, by the oblique Ts’ui Pên. I have compared hundreds of manuscripts, I have corrected the errors that the negligence of the copyists has introduced, I have guessed the plan of this chaos, I have re-established—I believe I have re-established—the primordial organization, I have translated the entire work: it is clear to me that not once does he employ the word ‘time.’ The explanation is obvious: The Garden of Forking Paths is an incomplete, but not false, image of the universe as Ts’ui Pên conceived it. In contrast to Newton and Schopenhauer, your ancestor did not believe in a uniform, absolute time. He believed in an infinite series of times, in a growing, dizzying net of divergent, convergent and parallel times. This network of times which approached one another, forked, broke off, or were unaware of one another for centuries, embraces all possibilities of time….”

- Jorge Luis Borges, The Garden of Forking Paths
(original Spanish title: "El jardín de senderos que se bifurcan")

【沈氏吟草】《蹭吃喝》

入秋暑气不肯消,西岸大火连天烧。

为盼中秋重开张,老夫先来报个到。
管它接着谈什么,至少,咱可以,呵呵,
蹭茶蹭饼蹭水饺。Do you think they care for jiaozi now?

《文人雅趣》——解读陈衡恪《煮茶图》

文人雅趣简而朗,砂壶破扇够欣赏。
分得一杯才暖肚,老眼昏花把诗详。
写意笔简意不简,诗中幽默乘草狂。
谁若识得通篇字,他的国学已够强。
喝咖啡的看不懂,等你翻译慢慢讲。

D.S.2020.0912.b

P.S.
(The following is my translation for the poem only, the rest of the inscription, which is the hard part in this case, is not included.)

Having recently developed an acquired taste for liquor,
I am telling friends however that am a heavy tea drinker.
To get a quick fix I am frantically fanning the stove like a slave.
Even icy cold water down my hot guts has failed to quench the thirst and provide relief.

Peaches and Grapes - Robert Spear Dunning (1829–1905)



西园晚霁浮嫩凉,
开尊漫摘葡萄尝。
满架高撑紫络索,
一枝斜亸金琅珰。

酒评如此之专业,汾酒集团想聘你。
煤矿老板不喜黑,专挑精品白兰地。
大小酒席天天有,就是缺少好翻译。
葡萄翻成赤霞珠,杏花村里摆阔气。
梅洛佳美黑比诺,佳译似能添酒味。
这段文字怎么翻,引得鲜卑出山西。

New Reported COVID-19 Cases Oct 4

are on the decline in only three US states
Rosalind Bruenig


As of Saturday night, new cases were down in Texas, Missouri and South Carolina, while 21 states reported a rise in cases and a little more than half held steady compared with the week before.

The mixed results come as the President joined the more than 7.3 million people who have tested positive for Covid-19 in the US, a sobering reminder of the virus’ reach as health experts urge continued vigilance during the fall and winter months.

The 21 states reporting a rise in new cases are Alaska, Connecticut, Delaware, Idaho, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Massachusetts, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Wisconsin and Wyoming.
