Cresceu Translation quotes by William Cowper
#1. I will venture to assert, that a just translation of any ancient poet in rhyme is impossible. No human ingenuity can be equal to the task of closing every couplet with sounds homotonous, expressing at the same time the full sense, and only the full sense of his original. #Quote by William Cowper
Cresceu Translation quotes by Mario Livio
#2. In the Middle Ages, the Elements was translated into Arabic three times. The first of these translations was carried out by al-Hajjaj ibn Yusuf ibn Matar, at the request of Caliph Harun ar-Rashid (ruled 786 - 809), who is familiar to us through the stories in The Arabian Nights. The Elements was first made known in Western Europe through Latin translations of Arabic versions. English Benedictine monk Adelard of Bath (ca. 1070 - 1145), who according to some stories was traveling in Spain disguised as a Muslim student, got hold of an Arabic text and completed the translation into Latin around 1120. This translation became the basis of all editions in Europe until the sixteenth century. Translations into modern languages followed. #Quote by Mario Livio
Cresceu Translation quotes by Cole Ryan
#3. In the first book of the Bible it is written that: "The Lord regretted that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him to his heart."
In another translation it is written like this: "God was sorry that he had made the human race in the first place; it broke his heart."
"It grieved him to his heart."
"It broke his heart."
We grieved him to his heart.
We broke his heart.
God's heart can be ... broken?
You cannot love without being vulnerable - because love involves the risk of the person you're loving not loving you back, of rejecting you - and that hurts.
That grieves you to your heart.
God had created man, and He loved them - but they didn't love Him back, and it broke His heart. #Quote by Cole Ryan
Cresceu Translation quotes by Terry Teachout
#4. No translation can possibly be perfect. Every production and every performance is a different path up the mountain, and nobody ever makes it all the way to the summit. #Quote by Terry Teachout
Cresceu Translation quotes by Gregory Rabassa
#5. Translation is a disturbing craft because there is precious little certainty about what we are doing, which makes it so difficult in this age of fervent belief and ideology, this age or greed and screed. #Quote by Gregory Rabassa
Cresceu Translation quotes by Cyril Connolly
#6. For what is liberty but the unhampered translation of will into act? #Quote by Cyril Connolly
Cresceu Translation quotes by Charles Spurgeon
#7. Men talk of "the mistakes of Scripture." I thank God that I have never met with any. Mistakes of translation there may be, for translators are men. But mistakes of the original word there never can be, for the God who spoke it is infallible, and so is every word he speaks, and in that confidence we find delightful rest. #Quote by Charles Spurgeon
Cresceu Translation quotes by Judith Butler
#8. Democracy does not speak in unison; its tunes are dissonant, and necessarily so. It is not a predictable process; it must be undergone, as a passion must be undergone. It may also be that life itself becomes foreclosed when the right way is decided in advance, or when we impose what is right for everyone, without finding a way to enter into community and discover the "right" in the midst of cultural translation. It may be that what is "right" and what is "good" consist in staying open to the tensions that beset the most fundamental categories we require, to know unknowingness at the core of what we know. #Quote by Judith Butler
Cresceu Translation quotes by Peter Mendelsund
#9. Writers closely observe the world and record their observations. When we remark that a novel is "finely observed," we are praising the writer's ability to bear witness. This bearing witness is composed of two acts: the author's initial observation in the real world, and then the translation of that observation into prose. The more "finely observed" the text, the better we readers recognize the thing or event in question. (Again-seeing and acknowledging are different activities.) #Quote by Peter Mendelsund
Cresceu Translation quotes by Weike Wang
#10. In Chinese, there is another phrase about love. It is not used for passionate love but the love between family members. In translation, it means I hurt for you. #Quote by Weike Wang
Cresceu Translation quotes by Xenophon Memorabilia. 371BC Marchant Translation
#11. I tell you, because military training is not publicly recognised by the state, you must not make that an excuse for being a whit less careful in attending to it yourself. For you may rest assured that there is no kind of struggle, apart from war, and no undertaking in which you will be worse off by keeping your body in better fettle.

"For in everything that men do the body is useful; and in all uses of the body it is of great importance to be in as high a state of physical efficiency as possible. Why, even in the process of thinking, in which the use of the body seems to be reduced to a minimum, it is matter of common knowledge that grave mistakes may often be traced to bad health.

"And because the body is in a bad condition, loss of memory, depression, discontent, insanity often assail the mind so violently as to drive whatever knowledge it contains clean out of it. But a sound and healthy body is a strong protection to a man, and at least there is no danger then of such a calamity happening to him through physical weakness: on the contrary, it is likely that his sound condition will serve to produce effects the opposite of those that arise from bad condition. And surely a man of sense would submit to anything to obtain the effects that are the opposite of those mentioned in my list.

"Besides, it is a disgrace to grow old through sheer carelessness before seeing what manner of man you may become by developing your bodily strength and beauty t #Quote by Xenophon Memorabilia. 371BC Marchant Translation
Cresceu Translation quotes by Sarah Moore Grimke
#12. [On the New Testament:] I ... must enter my protest against the false translation of some passages by the men who did that work, and against the perverted interpretation by the men who undertook to write commentaries thereon. I am inclined to think, when we [women] are admitted to the honor of studying Greek and Hebrew, we shall produce some various readings of the Bible a little different from those we now have. #Quote by Sarah Moore Grimke
Cresceu Translation quotes by Krista Ritchie
#13. I've wanted so many things in life," he says softly, "but you're the one that has meant the most to me."
Translation: I love you. #Quote by Krista Ritchie
Cresceu Translation quotes by Abdourahman A. Waberi
#14. In your opinion, where do private and political life, personal history and History meet? You know the answer, Maya. You say it unhesitatingly - in art and literature. #Quote by Abdourahman A. Waberi
Cresceu Translation quotes by James Scott Bell
#15. Structure is translation software for your imagination. #Quote by James Scott Bell
Cresceu Translation quotes by Caroline Lawrence
#16. I wanted to know if the 'Iliad' in the original was as relevant and contemporary as it was in translation. I then started Latin. I had finally found something I enjoyed and was good at: dead languages! #Quote by Caroline Lawrence
Cresceu Translation quotes by Paul Auster
#17. I was always interested in French poetry sort of as a sideline to my own work, I was translating contemporary French poets. That kind of spilled out into translation as a way to earn money, pay for food and put bread on the table. #Quote by Paul Auster
Cresceu Translation quotes by Adoniram Judson
#18. Though I have seldom done anything to my own satisfaction, I am better satisfied with the translation of the New Testament than I ever expected to be. The language is, I believe, simple, plain, intelligible; and I have endeavored, I hope successfully, to make every sentence a faithful representation of the original. #Quote by Adoniram Judson
Cresceu Translation quotes by Henry Drummond
#19. WORK MAKES MEN. A university is not merely a place for making scholars, it is a place for making Christians. A farm is not a place for growing corn, it is a place for growing character, and a man has no character except that which is developed by his life and thought. God's Spirit does the building through the acts which a man performs from day to day. A student who cons out every word in his Latin and Greek instead of consulting a translation finds that honesty is translated into his character. If he works out his mathematical problems thoroughly, he not only becomes a mathematician, but becomes a thorough man. It is by constant and conscientious attention to daily duties that thoroughness and conscientiousness and honorableness are imbedded in our beings. Character is #Quote by Henry Drummond
Cresceu Translation quotes by Janet Spens
#20. Now the twelfth canto of Book II is an almost literal translation from Tasso description in the Jerusalem Delivered of the island of Armida. That poem was not printed till 1582. It is likely enough that Spenser may have seen part of it in manuscript, which would account for the general resemblance of the Adonis passages, though the likeness is not close enough to make any debt certain. #Quote by Janet Spens
Cresceu Translation quotes by Nana Awere Damoah
#21. Many of us don't dream; more dangerously, many of us don't spend quality time thinking. We worry, yes, but we do not think. We don't project ourselves into the future. We don't utilize imagination. For many who do dream, what is lacking is the translation of the dream into reality and the tenacity to hold on to the dream when the going gets tough. #Quote by Nana Awere Damoah
Cresceu Translation quotes by Mohamed Latiff Mohamed
#22. I think, therefore I am. My fingers that caress these rose and frangipani petals are a result of my thoughts. I feel content, tender. I feel entranced, ecstatic and besotted by the fragrance of the flowers and this is because of my thoughts. #Quote by Mohamed Latiff Mohamed
Cresceu Translation quotes by Sandra Cisneros
#23. I was very lucky. I don't know German, or Dutch, or Chinese, or Thai. I don't know them, so I can't judge, so I have to go on the word of the publisher that it's a good translation. #Quote by Sandra Cisneros
Cresceu Translation quotes by Gaston Bachelard
#24. This word "description" may be disconcerting when used to refer to what is generally called a translation. But when one wishes to render a verbal creation (as opposed to a didactic statement) from one language to another, he is confronted with two equally unsatisfactory choices. He may, according to his talents, elaborate a similar, but never identical creation, or he may describe that creation as completely as possible in his own language. #Quote by Gaston Bachelard
Cresceu Translation quotes by Peter Newmark
#25. Translation is like love; I do not know what it is but I think I know what it is not. #Quote by Peter Newmark
Cresceu Translation quotes by Lalla Translation By Coleman Barks
#26. The mind is what sleeps. What recognizes itself as God is awake. #Quote by Lalla Translation By Coleman Barks
Cresceu Translation quotes by Leonardo Sciascia
#27. Translation is the other side of a tapestry. #Quote by Leonardo Sciascia
Cresceu Translation quotes by Suman Pokhrel
#28. Literary translation is not merely an act of picking words from one language and keeping it by dipping in the vessel of another language. Those words need to be rinsed, washed, carved and decorated as much as possible. #Quote by Suman Pokhrel
Cresceu Translation quotes by George Strait
#29. I love the song 'El Rey.' And for years, I never knew what the song was totally about. It was something new for me. I'd never sung a song in Spanish before. Then I got the translation and saw what a really cool song it was. #Quote by George Strait
Cresceu Translation quotes by Malcolm Gladwell
#30. Asian children can perform basic functions, such as addition, far more easily. Ask an English-speaking seven-year-old to add thirty-seven plus twenty-two in her head, and she has to convert the words to numbers (37 + 22). Only then can she do the math: 2 plus 7 is 9 and 30 and 20 is 50, which makes 59. Ask an Asian child to add three-tens-seven and two-tens-two, and then the necessary equation is right there, embedded in the sentence. No number translation is necessary: It's five-tens-nine. #Quote by Malcolm Gladwell
Cresceu Translation quotes by Olivia Sudjic
#31. We rarely get the chance to see things anew. I remember a Latin translation that caused me to fail an exam at school because one of the words, translated for us at the bottom of the page and intended to help, was invalid. I read this to mean false, null, illegal. The opposite of valid. But it was meant to be understood as invalid as in a sick person. It torpedoed my entire translation. Instead of tending to the sick, priests were being accused of fraudulence and neglecting their duties. Even though it didn't match up with the grammar, or the story, I kept on returning to that word to check, and every time I saw it only as I had done already - invalid, null, void. #Quote by Olivia Sudjic
Cresceu Translation quotes by Ted Hughes
#32. Some word - from before this translation #Quote by Ted Hughes
Cresceu Translation quotes by Karen Chance
#33. Poireaux vinaigrette aux grains de caviar."
I did a quick translation. "Leeks and fish eggs in vinegar?"
He grinned. "It sounds better in French."
Yeah, but did it taste better? #Quote by Karen Chance
