1. 要祈祷,就好像一切都取决于上帝似的;还要工作,就好像一切都取决于人似的。

Pray as if everything depended upon God and work as if everything depended upon man.   Francis Cardinal Spellman (1889 - 1967)

2. 政治,名词,利益冲突化装成原则竞赛。

Politics, n. Strife of interests masquerading as a contest of principles. Ambrose Bierce (1842 - 1914), The Devil's Dictionary  

3. 无论何处政客都一样。他们许诺要建造桥梁,即便在没有河的地方。

Politicians are the same all over. They promise to build a bridge even where there is no river.   Nikita Khrushchev (1894 - 1971)

4. 由于政客从来不相信自己说的话,所以当人们按他说的做时他感到很吃惊。

Since a politician never believes what he says, he is quite surprised to be taken at his word.  Charles De Gaulle (1890 - 1970)

5. 当众朗诵自己诗句的诗人可能还有其它讨人厌的习惯。

A poet who reads his verse in public may have other nasty habits.   Robert Heinlein (1907 - 1988), Time Enough for Love, 1978

6. 爱国主义就是你确信这个的国家优于其它国家因为你出生在这个国家。

Patriotism is your conviction that this country is superior to all other countries because you were born in it.   George Bernard Shaw (1856 - 1950)

7. 等到一个人认识到他爸爸可能正确时,他通常已经有孩子了,有了一个认为“爸爸错了”的孩子。

By the time a man realizes that maybe his father was right, he usually has a son who thinks he's wrong.   Charles Wadsworth

8. 麻烦即是机遇,只是着“工作”衣装

Trouble is only opportunity in work clothes.  Henry J. Kaiser (1882 - 1967)

9. 为自己的观点辩护,但不要认为自己的观点就是全部真理,或唯一真理。

Fight for your opinions, but do not believe that they contain the whole truth, or the only truth.    Charles A. Dana (1819 - 1897)

10. 如果人类少花时间证明他能在智慧上超过大自然,多花时间品尝大自然的甜美、尊重大自然,我就会为人类的光明前途感到更加乐观些

I would feel more optimistic about a bright future for man if he spent less time proving that he can outwit Nature and more time tasting her sweetness and respecting her seniority.     E. B. White (1899 - 1985)
