1.     Lazy? He used to ride his bike over cobblestones to knock the ash off his ciggie. Les Dawson, The Les Dawson Joke Book, 1979 懒惰?他常骑车走鹅卵石路来震掉香烟上的烟灰。

2.     Well, we can’t stand around here doing nothing, people will think we’re workmen. Spike Milligan, The Goon Show, BBC Radio, 1959 啊,我们不能站在这里什么也不做,那样,人们会以为我们是工匠呢。

3.     The art of leadership is saying no, not saying yes. It is very easy to say yes. Tony Blair, British Prime Minister, 1994 领导的艺术是说“不”,不是说“是”。说“是”很容易。

4.     As usual the Liberals offer a mixture of sound and original ideas. Unfortunately, none of the sound ideas is original and none of the original ideas is sound. Harold Macmillan, 1894-1986 British Conservative Prime Minister, speech 1961 像往常一样,自由党人又提出一些合理、独到的看法。遗憾的是,合理的看法无一独到,而独到的看法无一合理。

5.     I said to my Liberal friend that we are fundamentally the same. I spend money like it’s my money and you spend money like it’s my money. Richard K. Armey, Republican Congressman, Firing Line, PBS, 1990 我告诉我自由党人的朋友,我们本质上是一样的:我花钱的方式,好像钱是我的,你花钱的方式,也好像钱是我的。

6.     If you’re not a liberal at twenty you have no heart, and if you’re not a conservative at forty, you have no head. Winston Churchill, 1874-1965, British statesman and orator 如果你20岁时不是个自由党人,你没有良心,而你40岁时不是个保守党人,你没有头脑。

7.     A radical is a man with both feet firmly planted –in the air. A conservative is a man with two perfectly good legs who, however, has never learned to walk forward. Franklin D. Roosevelt, 1882-1945, 32nd President of the United States, radio address, 1939 激进分子是双脚坚定地扎根于空气的人。保守者是有一双完美的腿,却从未学过向前走的人。

8.     A lie can be halfway round the world before the truth has got its boots on. James Callaghan, 1912-2005, Labour Prime Minister, quoted in The Times, 1976 真相还没穿上鞋,谎言就可能已经跑遍半个世界了。

9.     I offer my opponents a bargain: if they will stop telling falsehoods about us, I will stop telling the truth about them. Adlai Stevenson, 1900-65, American politician and diplomat during the presidential campaign, 1952 我向对手提出一个交易:他们如果停止讲关于我们的谎言,我就停止讲关于他们的真相。

10.  Life is a wonderful thing to talk about, or to read about in history books –but it is terrible when one has to live it. Jean Anouilh, Time Remembered, 1939 生活谈起来或者在史书里读起来很美好――但是,过起来却很糟糕。
