阿尔伯特·诺克(Albert J. Nock)名言

The mind is like the stomach. It is not how much you put into it that counts, but how much it digests.

心如胃。重要的不是你投入了多少,而是消化了多少。

阿尔伯特·诺克

Considered now as a possession, one may define culture as the residuum of a large body of useless knowledge that has been well and truly forgotten.

现在认为文化是一种财富,我们可以把它定义为大量无用知识的残余,而这些无用知识已经被彻底地遗忘了。

阿尔伯特·诺克

The question of who is right and who is wrong has seemed to me always too small to be worth a moment's thought, while the question of what is right and what is wrong has seemed all-important.

在我看来,谁对谁错的问题总是太小了,不值得思考,而什么是对什么是错的问题则显得尤为重要。

阿尔伯特·诺克

Diligent as one must be in learning, one must be as diligent in forgetting; otherwise the process is one of pedantry, not culture.

勤于学习,勤于遗忘;否则这个过程就是迂腐,而不是文化。

阿尔伯特·诺克

It is unfortunately none too well understood that, just as the State has no money of its own, so it has no power of its own.

不幸的是,人们都不太明白,正如国家没有自己的钱一样,它也没有自己的权力。

阿尔伯特·诺克

As far as I know, I have no pride of opinion.

据我所知,我没有意见上的骄傲。

阿尔伯特·诺克

Useless knowledge can be made directly contributory to a force of sound and disinterested public opinion.

无用的知识可以直接促进健全和无私的舆论力量。

阿尔伯特·诺克

The positive testimony of history is that the State invariably had its origin in conquest and confiscation. No primitive State known to history originated in any other manner.

历史的积极证据是,国家总是起源于征服和没收。历史上没有一个原始国家是以其他方式起源的。
