Time was slower in the past,
Carriage, horse, mail needs time a little bit.
Even one greeting needs days to be passed
从前的日子很慢,
车,马,邮件很慢
一个问候,要等上好几天

The moonlight was slower in the past
With leisure, being indolent
The whole dawn needs a cup of tea to interpret
With little stars twinkling,
moments in your dreams move fast
从前的月光很慢
有点闲,有点懒
在一杯茶里消磨了整个黄昏
在半个梦里看星星满天

The pace was slower in the past
From one village to another near it
One needs a whole day on foot
从前的脚步好慢
从一个村子
到另一个村子
要走上一天的时间

The days were slower
but warmer in the past
Through a touch of light mist
Year after year, time is out.
从前的日子很慢很暖
裹在淡淡的烟火里
日日年年

The handerchiefs were finer in the past
Young ladies with soft eyebrows
in their perfect fit
stitch by stitch,
more delicate
从前的手帕也很好看
最是那低眉的女子
精致的,一针一线

It took time to fall in love in the past
So slow, one needs one's lifetime
seeking for Mr/Ms Right
So slow, you need your whole life
to love people that suit
从前的爱情很慢
慢的,用一辈子去等一个人
慢的,一生只爱一个人

Now with everything on the go,
one gets up earlier a little bit
No time to say good morning,
even a hug you cannot wait
现在快
快到每天早早起床
来不及说早安
来不及拥抱

In fact, in the city center,
even 5 minutes' on foot
Or a bit of leisure time
after your breakfast
Everything is different
其实
在中成,市中心,5分钟
茶余饭后的那一点点闲暇时光
就变了一个样

Now is faster
everything is in the replacement
So fast that life is easily to be parted
even you cannot notice it
现在快
什么都在更新换代
快到将生活扰得七零八落

In fact, cluttered life can be combined
by one after one highlight
Like the classical furnishings
mixed with modern decorations
in a sample apartment
Less dull, less stale, much more exquisite
其实,杂乱的生活也可以拼凑出一个个美好
就像样板间里带着古典气息的摆设
和现代化装修的搭一起
少了分沉闷古旧
多了份细腻

Now time flies faster,
just keep the pace after complaint
Strive for your dream
with your daring heart
Embrace your leisure time
until you are old but not in the past
Why not plan for your future earlier
to some extent?
现在快,抱怨几句,仍要跟上节奏
朝着自己的梦想,再努把力
把从前的悠闲搬到老年时享受
其实,何不早早规划未来?

Now is faster, dating with your love,
after dinner no time left
In fact, time is innocent,
but it is all your mind’s fault
现在快,与恋人约会
吃个饭,没了时间
其实
与时间无关
是心理在作祟

With a peaceful mind,
walking around the Bell Tower
in the old street
Choosing a book in the county library,
wandering in the old avenue on foot
You forget time has vanished
怀着一份平和
从钟楼老街溜达一圈
县图书馆选本书
老巷子里逛一逛
老了时光

Now is faster,
so fast that we always recall
beauty in the past
Passionately think of the world
once in its purest
现在快,
快到我们总是回忆起以前的美
然后疯狂想念那些纯净的世界

In fact, for your current anguish, beat it
Go to the North Square,
and close your eyes in a moment
overwhelming yourself
with those golden days in the past
Enjoy yourself with nothing in your heart
其实,暂且搁置现在的烦闷
去到北广场,然后闭上双眼
任那些美好将自己淹没
放空那个美好的世界享受下就好

It is good to be an ordinary person at hard thought
When you said slow pace is fine,
I back you a lot
其实想想,做个中庸的人也不错
你说慢节奏生活好,我附和着

When he told fast pace adds more spice to life ,
I agree without second thought
Like mansion with its luxury,
tiny apartment with its refinement
Good or bad, tell me not
他说快节奏生活刺激,我也赞同
就像小公寓精致,大宅奢阔
各有千秋,委实难分好坏

No matter how slow the past time was,
how fast it is in the current
无论从前有多慢
无论现在有多快

I know, the earth under your feet,
the love around your heart
Treasure them with your best,
no matter in the past
or in the right moment.
我知道,脚下的土地和身边的爱人
无论从前还是现在
都要尽全力守护和珍惜

-- 木心

我知道,脚下的土地和身边的爱人

无论从前还是现在

都要尽全力守护和珍惜
