Hahaha ur right

今天看到Livy的一句话: Perīculum in morā

大意为There is danger in delay 忽然想起自己这个拖延症 瑟瑟发抖

TJ小时候真是个小机灵鬼 (用吊袜带捆火鸡什么的emm)

前两天看到一句拉丁语的骚话:“manum meam Tibi dabo, si tu dabis tuam mihi.”

大意是:I will give my hand to you, if you give your hand to me.有一种执子之手的感觉,太美好了


Heart of Darkness 书摘IV

大概有一周没看了 我需要自我反思

【关于...我也不知道 人生吧 总之比较抽象】


Of course you may be too much of a fool to go wrong — too dull even to know you are being assaulted by the powers of darkness. I take it, no fool ever madea bargain for his soul with the devil — I don’t know which. Or you may be such a thunderingly exalted creature as to bealtogether deaf and blind to anything but heavenly sights and sounds. Then theearth for you is only a standing place —and whether to be like this is your loss or your gain I won’t pretend to say. But most of us are neither one nor the other. The earth for us is a place to live in, where we must put up with sights, with sounds, with smells, too, by Jove! — breath dead hippo, so to speak, and not becontaminated. And there, don’t you see? Your strength comes in, the faith in your ability for the digging of unostentatious holes to bury the stuff in — your power of devotion, not to yourself, but to an obscure, back-breaking business.

【今日读KJV,有感】

读的时候心情激动,一停下来就回到了原来的状态

Random quotes make me happy, but reading the Bible is a much more difficult thing


【Some Quotes From TJ】

*摘自各处,大概就是托马斯·杰弗(斐)逊的一些些名ji言tang*


图片来自1800年竞选时民主共和党的宣传画 贴出来是我纯粹为了报复社会以及吓人 bushi 其实TJ的蘑菇头看起来也是很ok的 emm


一部分so called名言如下⬇️ 不全 因为他一生中写的东西太多了 并且请先看文末的英文原文 因为有些中文翻译实在不敢让人恭维(忽略我的注释 因为可能比较沙雕)


对骄傲的人不要谦虚,对谦虚的人不要骄傲。


生气的时候,开口前先数到十,如果非常愤怒,先数到一百。


传播思想,无损于思想的传播者;同样,点燃蜡烛照亮他人者,也不会给自己带来黑暗。

若有可能,奴隶也会成为暴君。


诚实是智慧之书的第一章。


自由之树必然时常用爱国者和暴君的血来灌溉。它是自由之树的天然的肥料。

当一个人受到公众信任时,他就应该把自己看作为公众的财产。


法律和制度必须跟上人类思想进步。


人民是完全可以信赖的,应该让他们听到一切真实和虚伪的东西,然后作出正确的判断。倘使让我来决定,我们应该是有一个政府而不要报纸呢,还是应该有报纸而不要政府,我会毫不犹豫选择后者。


对于回忆过去,我更喜欢憧憬未来。


我们相信自己的力量,然而不夸耀;我们也尊重别人的力量,然而不畏惧。


上帝在给予我们生命的同时,也给了我们自由。当我们漠视这个信念的时候,难道一个国家的自由还是有保障的吗?每当我想起上帝是公正的,他的公正是不会永远休眠的时候,我就为我的国家颤抖。


绝不要因为便宜就去买你所不需要的东西,不需要的东西都是昂贵的。(注:所以你欠的债都是应当的?)


理智、正义和平等都没有足够的力量统治地球上的人类,唯有利益有这种力量。


当人民恐惧政府,是为暴政;若政府恐惧人民,方有自由。


异议,是爱国的最高形式。


每代人都需要新的革命。(注:但我很好奇TJ是怎么计算出每十九年需一次革命的)


使一个人值得信任的唯一方法就是信任他。


没有社交,没有适合我们口味的社会,人就永远得不到满足。


在我的一生中,我从来没有见过一个辩论者是通过争吵来说服别人的,说服力是我们平心静气地进行推理的结果,可以一个人单独地进行思索,也可以大家一起来琢磨别人讲的话有没有道理。


And sth in English:


Honesty is the first chapter in the book of wisdom.


My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government.


Do you want to know who you are? Don’t ask. Act! Action will delineate and define you.


The beauty of the Second Amendment is that it will not be needed until they try to take it.


Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude.


The Bible is the source of liberty.

The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.

Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add ‘within the limits of the law’ because law is often but the tyrant’s will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual.


A government big enough to give you everything you want, is a government big enough to take away everything that you have.


I like the dreams of the future better than the history of the past.

The care of human life and happiness, and not their destruction, is the first and only object of good government.


Yes, we did produce a near-perfect republic. But will they keep it? Or will they, in the enjoyment of plenty, lose the memory of freedom? Material abundance without character is the path of destruction.

Information is the currency of democracy.


Nothing gives one person so much advantage over another as to remain always cool and unruffled under all circumstances.


关于银行(以及对于AH银行法案的反驳什么的):

If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their Fathers conquered…I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies… The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs.


Whenever you do a thing, act as if all the world were watching.(注:与“history is watching you 如出一辙)


Some of my finest hours have been spent on my back veranda, smoking hemp and observing as far as my eye can see.


Determine never to be idle. No person will have occasion to complain of the want of time who never loses any. It is wonderful how much may be done if we are always doing.


The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.

 
 

Walking is the best possible exercise. Habituate yourself to walk very far.

今天是二零一八年十一月二十六日。首先祝贺陈惜|狗|先生成年了,他的生日如同卡斯特罗同志逝世那年一般再次目睹了人类的历史。

科学的进步和伦理问题在千百年来一直出现碰撞和争吵。哥白尼提出日心说时我们赞叹科学的伟大,原子弹第一次在新墨西哥州爆炸时我们又呼吁要珍视人性的善良。

这个事件究竟会不会打开“潘多拉魔盒”我现在不敢妄下结论。但如果这个事件是真的,现今一些为我们所维护的人类价值将毫无疑问地受到挑战。资本主义是否可以真的用金钱来从根本上撼动人人生而平等?未来具有科技优势或经济优势的民族国家是不是就可以用基因的方式改造本民族的人使其真正具有科学上的“优越性”现在的人的确不平等,财富的确分配不均,但我们至少还可以说基因在根本上具有随机性,命运的不同有时可以通过后|天努力改变,不同发展程度的国家和民族还可以通过改良和进步得到共同的提升。

真理在一段时间后才会出现,当下恐怕只有等待。

【伪科普】关于founding fathers的一些画像、名字及quotes?




大概就是这些。科普向(虽然很多大家都应该知道了)。很多info来自wikipedia。



请热爱Hamilton的朋友们看完,毕竟花不了多长时间。评论或补充什么的我会很开心的。另外,您会明白,取名字真的很重要,名如其人。



图一#美丽的Hamilton镇图


图二#年轻的麦老师美貌,虽然发际线依旧很高


图三#关于George这个名字。“乔治”来自希腊语,意为farmer。我们可以将乔三和华爹理解为farmer of the nation(建国老农民?)


图四#关于Alexander这个名字。也来自希腊语,意为“fend off”,可以理解为defend反抗及protect保护。想到Hamilton的一生,先是为了北美独立,后是联邦党,一直在保护着革命果实,为民主和自由而奋斗。


图五#TJ!(让我激动一会)Thomas。简称为Tom(是不是忽然沙雕?)意为“twin”,双胞胎也就是说心中住着两个声音。纵观杰斐逊的理论,他先是在Hamilton提出银行法案的时候严格解释宪法,后来购买路易斯安那,是宪法之外的内容。恭喜打脸。同时圣经中的圣托马斯在耶稣怀疑其真实性,因而后世称其为怀疑者。TJ作为民主共和党的leader自然是表示了自己对于政府诸多事物的怀疑。


图六#詹姆斯。可以联想到Madison和Monroe。总之,这个名字意为“follower”。Follower of Jefferson?可以这么理解吧。毕竟大家都是Democratic Republicans。


图七#TJ告诉你做人要诚实。


图八#麦老师强调知识的重要性。


图九#老农民TJ,以及他的蘑菇头(误)。


图十#TJ宣布禁运的时候他人所画的政治讽刺漫画(右边的是TJ) 




tag打的有点多。 

到此为止。有些草率。理解浅薄。感谢看完。

Heart of Darkness 书摘III

【这些算是关于Hunger】

No fear can stand up to hunger, no patience can wear it out, disgust simply does not exist where hunger is; and as to superstition, beliefs, and what you may call principles, they are less than chaff in a breeze.

It’s really easier to face bereavement, dishonor, and the perdition of one’s soul -than this kind of prolonged hunger. Sad, but true.

“I want to be lots of things at the same time”


事实上,我一直在专注地玩手机
