亚当·弗格森(Adam Ferguson)名言

Every step and every movement of the multitude, even in what are termed enlightened ages, are made with equal blindness to the future; and nations stumble upon establishments, which are indeed the result of human action, but not the execution of any human design.

所有人的每一步和每一步,甚至在开明时代,都对未来同样盲目。 各国偶然发现了场所,这确实是人类行动的结果,而不是任何人类设计的执行。

In every commercial state, notwithstanding any pretension to equal rights, the exaltation of a few must depress the many.

在每个商业国家中,尽管任何人都主张平等权利,但少数人的崇高必须压制许多人。

Like the winds that we come we know not whence and blow whither soever they list, the forces of society are derived from an obscure and distant origin. They arise before the date of philosophy, from the instincts, not the speculations of men.

就像我们来的风一样,我们不知道它们从何而来,无论从何而来,社会的力量都是来自一个晦涩而遥远的起源。 它们起源于哲学之前,不是出于人类的本能,而是出于本能。

The artist finds, that the more he can confine his attention to a particular part of any work, his productions are the more perfect, and grow under his hands in the greater quantities.

艺术家发现,他越能将注意力集中在任何作品的特定部分,他的作品就越完美,并在他的手下增长。

The history of mankind is confined within a limited period, and from every quarter brings an intimation that human affairs have had a beginning.

人类的历史被限制在一个有限的时期内,从每个季度开始都暗示着人类事务已经开始。

Man, in his animal capacity, is qualified to subsist in every climate.
