YOUTH--- Samuel Ullman
Youth is not a time of life; it is a state of mind; it is not a matter of rosy cheeks, red lips and supple knees; it is a matter of the will, a quality of the imagination, a vigor of the emotions; it is the freshness of the deep springs of life.
  Youth means a temperamental predominance of courage over timidity, of the appetite for adventure over the love of ease. This often exists in a man of sixty more than a boy of twenty. Nobody grows old merely by a number of years. We grow old by deserting our ideals.
  Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul. Worry, fear, self-distrust bows the heart and turns the spirit back to dust.
  Whether sixty or sixteen, there is in every human being's heart the lure of wonders, the unfailing child-like appetite of what's next, and the joy of the game of living. In the center of your heart and my heart there is a wireless station; so long as it receives messages of beauty, hope, cheer, courage and power from men and from the Infinite, so long are you young.
  When the aerials are down, and your spirit is covered with snows of cynicism and the ice of pessimism, then you've grown old, even at twenty, but as long as your aerials are up, to catch the waves of optimism, there is hope you may die young at eighty.
以上,是我们的敌人麦克阿瑟于朝鲜战争期间,挂在床头的一篇散文,算是座右铭,也算是一个老男孩儿对于青春的定义。
之所以想起这篇短文,是因为它合乎我对冯小刚导演的印象,出身下层部队大院家庭、挤身二代圈子、在《与青春有关的日子》被描述为“冯裤子”——一个笑话、渴望尊重;活脱脱一个男版“何小萍”。现在我更能理解冯小刚在功成名就之后的癫狂甚或偏激,得到尊重之后,那根弦也断了一阵儿。只是,今年国庆他还是被欺负了,因为仰望天空,总能看到猴屁股。
为了维护那得来不易的荣耀,冯小刚需要保持商业上的成功,但情怀怎么办?我就在影片的开始多拍一些澡堂子和大白腿吧,我求你们了,求你们来看看我在一个小时之后真正想要捧给你们的。这份情怀曾经叫做《集结号》、《1942》,现在叫做《芳华》……从骨子里,冯小刚是个怯懦的人,是一个手里抓着珍宝却不知道谁会珍惜的男孩儿。
所以,在我有能力挣钱之后,冯小刚的每一部电影都会去电影院看,感谢在年少时逗笑我,感谢这部没逗笑。

by Samuel Ullman

写在结尾的话:在她们爱慕虚荣的时候,让他们穿上绿装;在他们学会问“凭什么”之前,送他们上战场;在Ta们成为英雄之后,宣扬Ta们的荣耀。如果你没有看懂《芳华》,我好羡慕你一直生活在关爱和尊重里。如果你看到了青春洋溢,那我看到的是人性的阴暗;如果你看到了歌舞升平,那我看到的是两个平民子弟上了战场,一个惨了身、一个残了心的英雄。
如果英雄有哪怕一瞬间后悔上过战场,就是这个国家的耻辱。

     Youth means a temperamental predominance of courage over timidity of the appetite, for adventure over the love of ease.  This often exists in a man of sixty more than a boy of twenty.  Nobody grows old merely by a number of years.  We grow old by deserting our ideals.
