Adam Smith pointed out that there were three things that make us more prosperous, in a general sort of way: freedom to pursue our own self-interest; specialization, which he called division of labor; and freedom of trade.

亚当·史密斯(Adam Smith)指出,有三件事可以使我们从总体上来说更加繁荣:追求自己的自身利益的自由; 他称之为分工的专业化; 和贸易自由.

The problem with public school is not overcrowding in the classroom. The problem is not teacher unions. The problem is not underfunding or lack of computer equipment. The problem is your damn kids.

公立学校的问题不是教室里人满为患. 问题不在于教师工会. 问题不在于资金不足或缺乏计算机设备. 问题是你该死的孩子.

In Henry Adams, I discovered not only the prototype of the modern thinker but also someone who is more interesting: a viper-toothed, puling, supercilious crank, thwarted in ambition, aging gracelessly, mad at the cosmos, and ashamed of his own jejune ideals. He is nevertheless very dear to me.

在亨利·亚当斯(Henry Adams)中,我不仅发现了现代思想家的原型,而且发现了一个更有趣的人:毒蛇般的牙齿,卑鄙的人,卑鄙的曲柄,被挫败的志向,温柔地衰老,对宇宙发狂,并为自己的空肠感到羞耻 尽管如此,他对我还是很亲爱的.

To blame the existence of al Qaeda on poverty like Egypt's is a slur on the poor.

将“基地”组织的存在归咎于像埃及那样的贫困是对穷人的侮辱.

Even the dumber parts of our government are not run by idiots. These are ordinary people like us, doing a job. By and large, they're trying to do it as well as they can. Or at least as often as people in the private sector try to do as well as they can.

甚至我们政府的愚蠢地区也不是白痴. 这些是像我们这样的普通人,正在工作. 总的来说,他们正在尽力做到最好. 或至少尽可能多地尝试私营部门的人们尽力而为.

There are plenty of problems in the world, and doubtless climate change - or whatever the currently voguish phrase for it all is - certainly is one of them. But it's low on my list.

世界上有很多问题,毫无疑问,气候变化-或无论目前用什么口头禅-都是其中之一. 但这不在我的清单上.
