Hillbilly Elegy / 乡下人的悲歌 / (xiānɡxiàrén de bēiɡē)

1. Everyone in this world is one of three kinds. A good Terminator, a bad Terminator, and neutral.

世界上的人分三种,好的终结者,坏的终结者,和中立者。

(shìjièshànɡ de rén fēn sānzhǒnɡ, hǎode zhōnɡjiézhě, huàide zhōnɡjiézhě, hé zhōnɡlìzhě.) 

2. Where we come from is who we are, but we choose every day who we become.

我们来自哪里,代表我们是什么人,但我们每天都在选择成为什么人。

(wǒmén láizì nǎlǐ, dàibiǎo wǒmén shì shenmerén, dàn wǒmén měitiān dōu zài xuǎnzé chénɡwéi shenmerén.) 

3. When people ask where I'm from, I say Ohio because that's where I lived most of my life. But that's only part of my story. 

当人们问我从哪里来时,我说俄亥俄州是因为那是我一生大部分时间的住所。但这只是我故事的一部分。

(dānɡ rénmén wèn wǒ cónɡnǎlǐlái shí, wǒshuō éhàiézhōu shìyīnwéi nàshì wǒ yīshēnɡ dàbùfēn shíjiān de zhùsuǒ.dàn zhè zhīshì wǒ ɡùshì de yībùfēn) 

4. Whatever better life my grandparents had been chasing up Route 23, they never caught it. We were all different in Middletown somehow. I don't know, like something was missing. Maybe hope.

我祖父母无论怎样追逐23号公路的生活,他们从未得到。我们在米德尔敦不同。我好像有些东西丢失了。也许是希望。

(wǒ zǔfù mǔ wúlùn zěnyànɡ zhuīzhú 23hàoɡōnɡlù de shēnɡhuó, tāmén cónɡwèi dédào.wǒ mén zài mǐdéěrdūn bùtónɡ.wǒ hǎoxiànɡ yǒu xiē dōnɡxī diushīle.yěxǔshì xīwànɡ.) 

5. Hands down the best part of my childhood. It is gone forever. 

放下我童年里最美好的部分吧。它已经永久地消逝,不再回来。

(fànɡxià wǒ tónɡnián lǐ zuìměihǎo de bùfēnbā.tā yǐjīnɡ yǒnɡjiǔ de xiāoshì, bùzài huílái.)
