艾伦·克兰斯顿(Alan Cranston)名言

There will always be nations. The United States will last a long, long time, I believe. France and Germany and Japan, China, other nations, they're going to exist. But they're losing their significance and ability to deal with certain matters.

总会有国家。我相信美国会持续很长很长时间。法国,德国,日本,中国,其他国家,他们会存在。但他们正在失去处理某些事情的重要性和能力。

The idea of being a foreign correspondent and wandering the world and witnessing great events, having adventures and covering the activities of world leaders, appealed to me greatly. It was a very glamorous life in those days.

作为一名外国记者,周游世界,目睹重大事件,进行冒险活动,报道世界各国领导人的活动,这种想法对我很有吸引力。那时候的生活非常迷人。

I don't think just scaring people is enough. That worked during the freeze days to a major extent, but we really didn't achieve that much even at that time. You have to have more, you have to give people hope and a vision of a better world.

我认为仅仅吓唬人是不够的。这在冰封的日子里起到了很大的作用,但即使在那个时候,我们也没有取得那么大的成就。你必须拥有更多,你必须给人们希望和一个更美好世界的愿景。

Unless you have a sense of values that's shared by people and turns them loose to do certain things on their own within those sets of values, the organization, whether a nation or corporation or citizen group, just doesn't work very well.

除非你有一种价值观,这种价值观是人们所共有的,并让他们在这些价值观中自由地做某些事情,否则这个组织,无论是一个国家、公司还是公民团体,都不会很好地运作。

I don't think there's any one definition, but to do effective political work you have to have vision and practicality, and learn how to persuade people that what you feel needs to be done does need to be done.

我不认为有任何一个定义,但要做有效的政治工作,你必须有远见和实用性,并学会如何说服人们,你觉得需要做的事情确实需要做。
