In spite of everything, he remains impressive, as though he were a sailor standing athwart a slanting deck.
 
by Richard Selzer
from "The Discus Thrower"

Explanation of the Quote

In "The Discus Thrower," Richard Selzer described a terminally ill patient who looked awfully sick and lifeless. However, this patient still made such a strong impression that the patient was like a soldier who was the dominant focus on a slanting deck.

作者在 "The Discus Thrower" 這篇散文裡,描寫一位生命走到末期的病患;這位病患雖然看來慘不忍睹,然而他給人非常強烈的印象,就好比在一個已經傾斜的甲板上,昂然矗立著一位吸引人們全部注意力的水手一般。
