周国平节选

肖伯纳说:“人生有两大悲剧,一是没有得到你心爱的东西,另一是得到了你心爱的东西。”我曾经深以为然,并且佩服他把人生的可悲境遇表述得如此轻松俏皮。但仔细玩味,发现这话的立足点仍是占有,所以才会有占有欲未得满足的痛苦和已得满足的无聊这双重悲剧。如果把立足点移到创造上,以审美的眼光看人生,我们岂不可以反其意而说:人生有两大快乐,一是没有得到你心爱的东西,于是你可以去寻求和创造;另一是得到了你心爱的东西,于是你可以去品味和体验?当然,人生总有其不可消除的痛苦,而重情轻利的人所体味到的辛酸悲哀,更为逐利之辈所梦想不到。但是,摆脱了占有欲,至少可以使人免除许多琐屑的烦恼和渺小的痛苦,活得有气度些。我无意以审美之情为救世良策,而只是表达了一个信念:在义与利之外,还有一种更值得一过的人生。这个信念将支撑我度过未来吉凶难卜的岁月
