Complete 和 Finish 的區別

滿有趣的解釋,除了 complete 和 finish 之外,還有 done 也很常用。

電影 《征服情海》(Jerry Maguire,1996) 裡的經典台詞

You complete me , 是妳讓我變得完整

在電影裡,湯姆克魯斯一開始在這段感情還有點可有可無,他是在追求自己夢想,直到女生對他失望,才發現了女生的重要性。另一個類似的劇情在講夢想和愛情那一個重要的是《進擊的鼓手
》(Whiplash,)。

什麼樣會讓人變的完整呢?我想是因為體會了某件事情或人可以讓自己更快樂,大多的電影、連續劇的題材都是在講「有時眼見不為憑」,例如:

  • 「擁有才是幸福」,所以要綁住、用力抓住自己認定的幸福。
  • 看見老婆外遇那不是真的,一切都是假的,是你眼睛業障重。
  • Less is more,擁有的愈少愈快樂。

聯想:

  • 一定需要一個異性(或另一半),我們才能感到完整嗎?
  • 沒人愛的人就不能完整嗎?
  • 曾經被愛過,覺得人生完整,但愛你的人(家人、親人、戀人或知己)變心了、離開了或死了,人生就不再完整了嗎?
