阿比·林肯(Abbey Lincoln)名言

But I've been there and done that. I'm not trying to prove anything to anybody, and if somebody wants me to come, if they can afford what I ask, it's not as much as Madonna makes; not that I want what Madonna makes, but I was saying.

但我已经去过了。我不想向任何人证明什么,如果有人要我来,如果他们能负担得起我的要求,那就没有麦当娜赚的那么多;不是我想要麦当娜做的,而是我在说。

I remember hearing the song when I was 12 or 14 in - it must have been in Chicago, 'cause we didn't have a radio on the farm, and it was during the second World War. I had three brothers in that war who went overseas.

我记得在我12或14岁的时候听过这首歌-一定是在芝加哥,因为我们农场没有收音机,那是在第二次世界大战期间。在那场战争中我有三个兄弟出国了。

There are men and women still on the streets, and that's all they are saying Can you spare a quarter? I come from a crowd of people who were current on the outlook on life, who were social and knew where they were and had some input into how things seemed to be.

街上还有男男女女,他们就说这些,你能抽出一刻钟吗?我来自一群人,他们对生活的看法是最新的,他们是社会性的,知道自己在哪里,对事情的发展有一些看法。

I think that's what really a substantial work is, it's forever. It's the truth now and it was the truth then, and it will be the truth tomorrow.

我认为这才是真正意义上的实质性工作,它是永远的。现在是事实,那时候也是事实,明天也是事实。
