As a nation, Kuwait has been, arguably, free of freedom itself. Claimed in turn by Constantinople, Riyadh, and Baghdad, Kuwait has survived by playing Turks off Persians, Arabs off one another, and the English off everyone.

作为一个国家,科威特可以自由地享有自由. 科威特后来被君士坦丁堡,利雅得和巴格达所称,通过与土耳其人对抗波斯,与阿拉伯人对抗,以及与所有人对抗英国而幸存下来.

Being a humorist is not a voluntary thing. You can tell this because in a situation where saying a funny thing will cause a lot of trouble, a humorist will still say the funny thing. No matter how inappropriate.

成为幽默主义者不是自愿的. 您可以这样说,因为在说有趣的话会带来很多麻烦的情况下,幽默家仍然会说有趣的话. 不管多么不合适.

The great majority of Baghdad is a slum - a lot of it's new, but it's still slum. It's usually this concrete-block, one-room design with a door and a window, arranged one-up, one-down, often with a shop with nothing in it on the first floor, and then a one-room apartment above it. There's street after street after street of that stuff.

巴格达的绝大多数是贫民窟-很多是新的,但仍然是贫民窟. 通常是这种混凝土砌块的单室设计,带有门和窗户,上下一层地布置,通常在二楼没有商店的情况下在其上铺一间一室公寓. 这些东西一路又一路走.

奥洛克

A person has got to balance work and life and family in order to be a balanced person.

一个人必须平衡工作,生活和家庭,才能成为一个平衡的人.
