殺死一隻知更鳥

最近我們讀了一篇文章,是關於一個喜歡雕刻邪魔鬼怪塑像的人。他後來想改變自己的面相,就去找老和尚;老和尚告訴他雕刻完一百尊佛像就跟他講,他就去雕佛像,結果雕完一百尊他的面相自然就變好了,他還不知其妙地去找老和尚,然後老和尚告訴他,你面相已經好了呀,不信你看看鏡子?這就是說,近朱者赤近墨者黑,可在現實中這並不是一件容易的事,尤其在整個社會都處在一種不好的風氣中。墨者總是那樣誘人,朱者卻仿佛難以企及,然而叔叔在這裡給我們創造的正是這樣一種環境,且輔助以各式的方法,使我們能真正虔誠向善,祛除內心及身體上所有不好的東西。故事的結尾說,這人後來覺得世界萬物都十分可愛,且吃飯也吃得香了,讓人忍俊不禁,也讓我倏然想起自己剛來時飯量簡直一下提升了兩三倍有餘。


Recently we have just read an article, about a person who loved carving demons. He later wanted to change his facial, thus going to meet an old monk; old monk told the person that he would tell after his having carved one hundred figures of Buddha. The result was that his facial turned good after carving, but he still went to find the monk without consciousness, and the old monk told him, “your facial has already changed, look at a mirror to see.” This means, turning red if close to red, turning black if close to black, but it’s not an easy thing in the real life. Black always seems that alluring, but red unobtainable, but what uncle here created was just such an environment, with various techniques, making us really closer to goodness, and cleaning our mind and body off ungood things. The end of the story says, this person later finds the world and all creatures lovable, and gets a bigger appetite. This is amusing, and also reminds me of the time when I just came, when my appetite got doubled or tripled or more.


《殺死一隻知更鳥》裡的南方小鎮,主角阿迪克斯哪怕與全鎮人和他的家人為敵,也要為一個黑人辯護,只因為那是正義所在。有意思的地方在於,那些村裡的人其實都不是壞人,平常還會熱心地互相幫助,卻只要一提到黑人就會失去理智。這也讓我想起歷史上的許多事情,也都是這樣,善良的人最後成了邪惡的幫兇。而既然如此的話,那麼恐怕智慧和辨識也是善良的一部分,是人所必需的東西。


In the southern town of To Kill A Mockingbird, the main character Atticus pled for a black man even if it means the opposite to all the people of the town, just because it is where justice lays. The interesting part is that those town people are not bad, willing to help each other in the daily lives, but would go mad at the mere mention of black man. This also reminded me of many things in the history also like this, good people finally becoming the helpers of evil. Because of this, then wisdom is also a part of goodness, a thing that everyone needs.
