在「1984」中的一段話 …

在著名小說「1984」中,Winston 和 Julia 相處這部分的內容有提到這段話:「Already we know almost literally nothing about the Revolution and the years before the Revolution. Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book has been rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street and building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And that process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right. 」

喔!對了!上週六我又去台科跑步了,時間從 16:46~17:20,共跑了 30 圈,繼續幫我加油吧!
 
P.S. 我慢跑不是跟別人比賽的,不過我坦承,看到有人從旁邊超越我時,通常在沒幾分鐘後我就會超越他,然後不會讓他有下一次機會了。這是所謂的 Kiasu-ism 嗎!?嗯 … 也許吧!哈哈!
