What he was doing, he was giving her a feel under the table, and at the same time telling her about some guy in his dorm that had eaten a whole bottle of aspirin and nearly committed suicide. His date kept saying to him, "How horrible...Don't, darling. Please, don't. Not here." Imagine giving somebody a feel and telling them about a guy committing suicide at the same time! They killed me.

Me gusta mucho tomar el pelo a una chica cuando se presenta la oportunidad, pero es una cosa curiosa. A las que más me gustan, nunca me apetece mucho tomarles el pelo. A veces me parece que a ellas les gustaría que les tomase el pelo —de hecho que les gustaría—, pero es difícil empezar una vez que las conoces desde hace mucho tiempo y nunca les has tomado el pelo.

Then she introduced me to the Navy guy. His name was Commander Blop or something. He was one of those guys that think they're being a pansy if they don't break around forty of your fingers when they shake hands with you.

-¿Te has hartado alguna vez de todo? -le dije-. ¿Has pensado alguna vez que a menos que hicieras algo en seguida el mundo se te venía encima?

They advertise in about a thousand magazines, always showing some hot-shot guy on a horse jumping over a fence. Like as if all you ever did at Pencey was play polo all the time. I never even once saw a horse anywhere near the place. And underneath the guy on the horse's picture, it always says: "Since 1888 we have been molding boys into splendid, clear-thinking young men." Strictly for the birds. They don't do any damn more molding at Pencey than they do at any other school. And I didn't know anybody there that was splendid and clear-thinking and all. Maybe two guys. If that many. And they probably came to Pencey that way.

Pensaba que era muy inteligente. Lo pensaba porque sabía mucho sobre teatro, y sobre obras de teatro, y sobre literatura y todo eso. Si alguien sabe mucho de esas cosas tardas bastante tiempo en descubrir si realmente es estúpido o no.

I just mean that I used to think about old Spencer quite a lot, and if you thought about him too much, you wondered what the heck he was still living for. I mean he was all stooped over, and he had very terrible posture, and in class, whenever he dropped a piece of chalk at the blackboard, some guy in the first row always had to get up and pick it up and hand it to him. That's awful, in my opinion. But if you thought about him just enough and not too much, you could figure it out that he wasn't doing too bad for himself. For instance, one Sunday when some other guys and I went over there for hot chocolate, he showed us this old beat-up Navajo blanket that he and Mrs. Spencer'd bought off some Indian in Yellowstone Park. You could tell old Spencer'd got a big bang out of buying it. That's what I mean. You take somebody old as hell, like old Spencer, and they can get a big bang out of buying a blanket.

What made it even more depressing, old Spencer had on this very sad, ratty old bathrobe that he was probably born in or something.

The best thing, though, in that museum was that everything always stayed right where it was. Nobody'd move. You could go there a hundred thousand times, and that Eskimo would still be just finished catching those two fish, the birds would still be on their way south, the deers would still be drinking out of that water hole, with their pretty antlers and their pretty, skinny legs, and that squaw with the naked bosom would still be weaving that same blanket. Nobody'd be different. The only thing that would be different would be you. Not that you'd be so much older or anything. It wouldn't be that, exactly. You'd just be different, that's all. You'd have an overcoat on this time. Or the kid that was your partner in line the last time had got scarlet fever and you'd have a new partner. Or you'd have a substitute taking the class, instead of Miss Aigletinger. Or you'd heard your mother and father having a terrific fight in the bathroom. Or you'd just passed by one of those puddles in the street with gasoline rainbows in them. I mean you'd be different in some way- I can't explain what I mean. And even if I could, I'm not sure I'd feel like it.

The funny part is, I felt like marrying her the minute I saw her. I'm crazy. I didn't even like her much, and yet all of a sudden I felt like I was in love with her and wanted to marry her. I swear to God I'm crazy. I admit it.

After I shut the door and started back to the living room, he yelled something at me, but I couldn't exactly hear him. I'm pretty sure he yelled "Good luck!" at me. I hope not, I hope to hell not. I'd never yell "Good luck!" t anybody. It sounds terrible, when you think about it.

You should've seen the way they said hello. You'd have thought they hadn't seen each other in twenty years. You'd have thought they'd taken baths in the same bathtub or something when they were little kids.

He gave out a big yawn while he said that. Which is something that gives me a royal pain in the ass. I mean if somebody yawns right while they're asking you to do them a goddamn favor.

نمیخوام بگم که فقط آدم های تحصیل کرده و با سواد میتوانند چیزهای با ارزشی را به جهان عرضه کنند . همیشه اینطوری نیست . اما معتقدم افراد تحصیلکرده و باسواد ، اگر باهوش و خلاق باشند - که متاسقانه به ندرت این جوری هستند - نسبت به آن هایی که صرفا باهوش و خلاق هستند آثار با ارزش تری از خودشون به جا میگذارند . آن ها میتوانند حرف هایشان را روشن تر بیان کنند و معمولا مشتاقند افکارشان را تا آخر دنبال کنند . مهمتر از همه ، از هر ده نفر ، نه نفرشان نسبت به متفکرین تحصیل نکرده تواضع و فروتنی بیشتری دارند .

Yeah?" Stradlater said. That really interested him. About the booze hound running around the house naked, with Jane around. Stradlater was a very sexy bastard."She had a lousy childhood. I'm not kidding."That didn't interest Stradlater, though. Only very sexy stuff interested him.

Ainult mulle tundub, et tihti inimene ei tea algul isegi, mis teda huvitab, ja avastab selle alles kõneldes millestki, mis teda eriti ei huvita. Sinna ei ole midagi parata. Sellepärast ma arvan, et inimene jäetagu rahule, kui ta on vähemalt millestki huvitatud ja kõneldes põlema läheb. Mulle meeldib, kui keegi põlema läheb. See on nii kena.

Then I thought about the whole bunch of them sticking me in a goddam cemetery and all, with my name on this tombstone and all. Surrounded by dead guys. Boy, when you're dead, they really fix you up. I hope to hell when I do die somebody has sense enough to just dump me in a river or something. Anything except sticking me in a goddam cemetery. People coming and putting a bunch of flowers on your stomach on Sunday, and all that crap. Who wants flowers when you're dead? Nobody.

See kuristik, mille poole sa veered, on erilist laadi, kohutav kuristik. Inimene, kes sinna kukub, ei tunne selle põhja. Ta aina langeb ja langeb. Niisugusesse kuristikku langevad inimesed, kes oma elu teataval perioodil on hakanud otsima midagi sellist, mida nende ümbrus neile pakkuda ei suuda. Või õigemini - kes arvavad, et nende ümbrus ei suuda seda neile pakkuda. Ja nad loobuvad otsimast. Loobuvad enne, kui nad on õieti alustanudki.

It rained on his lousy tombstone, and it rained on the grass on his stomach. It rained all over the place. All the visitors that were visiting the cemetery started running like hell over to their cars. That's what nearly drove me crazy. All the visitors could get in their cars and turn on their radios and all and then go someplace nice for dinner- everybody except Allie. I couldn't stand it. I know it's only his body and all that's in the cemetery, and his soul's in Heaven and all that crap, but I couldn't stand it anyway. I just wish he wasn't there. You didn't know him. If you'd known him, you'd know what I mean. It's not too bad when the sun's out, but the sun only comes out when it feels like coming out.

Eso es lo malo. Que no hay forma de dar con un sitio bonito y tranquilo porque no existe. Puedes creer que existe, pero una vez que llegas allí, cuando no estás mirando, alguien se cuela y escribe «Que te jodan» delante de tus narices. Prueben y verán. Creo que si algún día me muero y me meten en un cementerio y me ponen encima una lápida que diga Holden Caulfield y el año en que nací y el año de mi muerte, debajo alguien escribirá «Que te jodan». De hecho estoy convencido.

Boy, did he depress me! I don't mean he was a bad guy- he wasn't. But you don't have to be a bad guy to depress somebody- you can be a good guy and do it. All you have to do to depress somebody is give them a lot of phony advice while you're looking for your initials in some can door- that's all you have to do. I don't know. Maybe it wouldn't have been so bad if he hadn't been all out of breath.

Ce se întîmplă cu tine, băiete? mă întrebă. Vorbea destul de aspru pentru felul lui de a fi. Cîte materii ai urmat în trimestrul ăsta? - Cinci, domnule profesor. - Cinci? Şi la cîte ai căzut? - La patru.Îmi amorţise fundul stînd pe pat. În viaţa mea nu stătusem pe un pat atît de tare. - La engleză am trecut, i-am spus, fiindcă poveştile cu Beowulf şi cu Lord Randal, fiul meu le-am învăţat încă de pe vremea cînd eram la Whooton. Şi, de fapt, la engleză nu trebuia să fac mai nimic, decît să scriu din cînd în cînd cîte o compunere.Bătrînul nici nu mă asculta. N-asculta niciodată cînd îi vorbeai. - Eu unul te-am trîntit la istorie fiindcă n-ai ştiut absolut nimic. - Ştiu, domnule profesor, vă înţeleg. Ce era să faceţi? - Absolut nimic, repetă el.Tare mă înfurie cînd oamenii repetă de două ori un lucru pe care tu l-ai recunoscut de prima dată. Şi pe urmă a mai spus-o şi a treia oară. - Dar absolut nimic. Ai deschis cartea măcar o dată, în trimestrul ăsta? Eu mă îndoiesc. Spune drept! - Păi, ştiţi, am răsfoit-o... de vreo două ori, am spus.Nu voiam să-l jignesc. Îi plăcea istoria la nebunie! - A, ai răsfoit-o! spuse el foarte ironic. Uite, hm, teza ta e acolo sus pe raft, deasupra teancului de caiete. Ad-o, te rog, încoace.Era o figură urîtă din partea lui. Dar n-am avut încotro, m-am dus şi i-am adus-o. Pe urmă, m-am aşezat din nou pe patul lui de ciment. Mamă, nici nu ştiţi ce rău începuse să-mi pară că venisem să-mi iau rămas bun.Ţinea lucrarea mea de parc-ar fi fost o bucată de rahat sau mai ştiu eu ce. - Am studiat cu voi egiptenii de la 4 noiembrie la 2 de¬cembrie, îmi zise. Singur ai ales să scrii despre ei la lucrarea facultativă de control. Vrei să auzi ce-ai scris? - Nu, domnule profesor, nu face, i-am răspuns.Cu toate astea, începu să citească. Nu poţi opri niciodată un profesor să facă un anumit lucru, dacă s-a hotărît să-l facă. Oricum, face tot ce vrea el!Egiptenii sînt o rasă veche de caucazieni care locuiesc într-una din regiunile din nordul Africii. Africa, după cum ştim cu toţii, e cel mai mare continent în emisfera răsăriteană.Şi eu eram obligat să stau şi s-ascult toate tîmpeniile astea! Zău că era urît din partea lui.Pe noi, astăzi, egiptenii ne interesează din mai multe motive. Ştiinţa modernă n-a descoperit nici pînă azi ce substanţe misterioase întrebuinţau cînd îmbălsămau morţii, pentru ca feţele lor să nu putrezească secole la rînd. Această enigmă interesantă continuă să constituie o sfidare pentru ştiinţa modernă a secolului XX.Se opri şi puse jos lucrarea. Începusem să-l urăsc! - Eseul tău, ca să-i zicem aşa, se opreşte aici, spuse cît se poate de ironic. N-ai crede că un tip atît de bătrîn poate fi atît de ironic şi aşa mai departe. Apoi adăugă: Şi în josul paginii mi-ai scris şi mie cîteva cuvinte. - Ştiu, ştiu, i-am răspuns precipitat, ca să-l opresc înainte de a-ncepe să citească.Dar parcă mai putea cineva să-l oprească?! Ardea ca un fitil de dinamită.Dragă domnule Spencer (citi el cu glas tare), asta e tot ce ştiu eu despre egipteni. Nu reuşesc să mă intereseze, cu toate că dumneavoastră predaţi foarte frumos. Să ştiţi totuşi că nu mă supăr dacă mă trîntiţi - că în afară de engleză tot am picat la toate materiile. Cu stimă, al dumnea¬voastră, Holden Caulfield.În sfîrşit, a pus jos lucrarea mea nenorocită şi mi-a arun¬cat o privire de parcă m-ar fi bătut măr la ping-pong sau mai ştiu eu ce. Cît oi trăi nu cred c-am să-l iert c-a citit cu glas tare toate rahaturile alea. Dacă le-ar fi scris el, eu unul nu i le-aş fi citit niciodată. Zău că nu. Şi, de fapt, nu-i scrisesem notiţa aia nenorocită decît ca să nu-i pară prea rău că mă trînteşte. - Mă condamni că te-am trîntit, băiete? m-a întrebat el. - Nu, domnule profesor, zău că nu! i-am răspuns eu.Numai de-ar fi încetat naibii să-mi mai zică "băiete"!

Don't you think there's a time and place for everything? Don't you think if someone starts out to tell you about his father's farm, he should stick to his guns, then get around to telling you about his uncle's brace? Or, if his uncle's brace is such a provocative subject, shouldn't he have selected it in the first place as his subject - not the farm?

Después me imaginé a toda la panda dejándome en un maldito cementerio con i nombre escrito en una lápida y todo eso. Rodeado de tíos muertos. Jo, buena te la hacen cuando te mueres. Espero que cuando me muera alguien tenga sentido común suficiente como para tirarme al río o algo así. Cualquier cosa menos meterme en un maldito cementerio. Eso de que venga la gente los domingos a ponerte ramos de flores en el estómago y todo ese rollo. ¿Quién quiere flores cuando ya se ha muerto? Nadie.

Si quieren saber la verdad, no me gustan mucho las obras de teatro. No están tan mal como las películas, pero tampoco son como para volverse loco. Para empezar, me revientan los actores. Nunca actúan como la gente. Aunque ellos creen que sí. Algunos buenos lo hacen, un poco, pero no de una manera que te divierta verlo. Y si un actor es realmente bueno, se le nota que sabe> que es bueno y eso lo estropea todo.

I'm not trying to tell you that only educated and scholarly men are able to contribute something valuable to the world. It's not so. But I do say that educated and scholarly men, if they're brilliant and creative to begin with- which, unfortunately, is rarely the case- tend to leave infinitely more valuable records behind them than men do who are merely brilliant and creative. They tend to express themselves more clearly, and they usually have a passion for following their thoughts through to the end. And- most important- nine times out of ten they have more humility than the unscholarly thinker.
