亚当·米奇尼克(Adam Michnik)名言

Politics is the art of achieving political goals - of achieving what is possible in a given situation - that is, in a situation that has its conditions and its limits.

政治是实现政治目标的艺术——实现在特定情况下可能实现的目标——也就是说,在一种有其条件和限制的情况下。

The Polish freedom movement of 1968 lost its confrontation with police violence; the Prague Spring was crushed by the armies of five Warsaw Pact members. But in both countries, 1968 gave birth to a new political consciousness.

1968年的波兰自由运动失去了与警察暴力的对抗;布拉格之春被华约五个成员国的军队镇压。但在这两个国家,1968年产生了新的政治意识。

If you're powerful, you are much more likely to be blind and deaf to signals from outside.

如果你很强大,你很可能对外界的信号视而不见或充耳不闻。

After the French Revolution, it was not the treason of the king that was in question; it was the existence of the king. You have to be very careful when you judge and execute somebody for being a symbol.

法国大革命后,问题不在于国王的叛国行为;这是国王的存在。你必须非常小心,当你判断和执行某人是一个象征。

For those of us imprisoned in Poland, the Prague Spring was a harbinger of hope.

对于我们这些被囚禁在波兰的人来说,布拉格之春是希望的预兆。

Poland is an ally of the United States of America. It was our duty to show that we are a reliable, loyal, and predictable ally. America needed our help, and we had to give it.

波兰是美利坚合众国的盟友。我们有责任表明我们是一个可靠、忠诚和可预测的盟友。美国需要我们的帮助,我们必须给予帮助。

France can never accept that it is no longer a dominating power in the world of culture. This is true both of the French right and the French left. They keep thinking that Americans are primitive cowboys or farmers who do not understand anything.

法国永远不能接受它不再是文化世界的主导力量。法国右派和左派都是这样。他们一直认为美国人是原始的牛仔或农民,什么都不懂。

I consider that 9/11 was the day when war was started against my own work and against myself. Even though we are not sure of the links, Iraq was one of the countries that did not lower its flags in mourning on 9/11.

我认为9/11是对我自己的工作和我自己发动战争的日子。尽管我们不确定两者之间的联系,但伊拉克是在9/11事件中没有降下国旗以示哀悼的国家之一。
