#1. So much gets lost in the translation. Even if you sat there listening to it with a microscope, there's no way you're gonna find out what it means. - Author: Frank Zappa
Kuokoa Translation quotes by Frank Zappa
#2. The original is unfaithful to the translation. - Author: Jorge Luis Borges
Kuokoa Translation quotes by Jorge Luis Borges
#3. It's not a natural translation, transition, to take something from stage to screen. Onstage your action is communicated through the spoken word primarily, and on screen it's communicated through pictures. So it's always been kind of unnatural to take something that lives on the stage and turn it into moving pictures. - Author: Tracy Letts
Kuokoa Translation quotes by Tracy Letts
#4. Doubtless many can recall certain books which have greatly influenced their lives, and in my own case one stands out especially-a translation of Hofmeister's epoch-making treatise on the comparative morphology of plants. This book, studied while an undergraduate at the University of Michigan, was undoubtedly the most important factor in determining the trend of my botanical investigation for many years. - Author: Douglas Houghton Campbell
Kuokoa Translation quotes by Douglas Houghton Campbell

Kuokoa Translation quotes by Walter Benjamin
#8. The problem, of course, is that languages are not only languages. They're also worldviews -- and therefore, to some extent, untranslatable ... - Author: Nancy Huston
Kuokoa Translation quotes by Nancy Huston

Kuokoa Translation quotes by Joe Cawley
#10. Body language has no translation. - Author: Ljupka Cvetanova
Kuokoa Translation quotes by Ljupka Cvetanova
#11. Justice is a process, and change takes time, but I believe we ought to dream big dreams and make big statements as we pursue those dreams. Amos didn't tell the people that God wants justice to trickle through their society. The New Living Translation uses the phrase "mighty flood of justice" (Amos 5:24) to describe what God wants to see. One thing we learned in Mendenhall is that once flood waters start rushing through a place, there's no turning them back with human strength. - Author: John M. Perkins
Kuokoa Translation quotes by John M. Perkins
#12. God knows our hearts. There is no need for an idle formula or an intermediary. No need for language either: God is beyond translation. - Author: Hilary Mantel
Kuokoa Translation quotes by Hilary Mantel
#13. TRULY, "thoughts are things," and powerful things at that, when they are mixed with definiteness of purpose, persistence, and a BURNING DESIRE for their translation into riches, or other material objects. A - Author: Napoleon Hill
Kuokoa Translation quotes by Napoleon Hill
#14. As long as human beings speak different languages, the need for translation will continue. - Author: Nataly Kelly
Kuokoa Translation quotes by Nataly Kelly
#15. The Klingon snarled something that sounded horribly like Christy's pissed-off texts and everyone shut up. "First Spiner's Q and A, then Nimoy's tribute while Data gets his kicks with the Orion woman. Then signed pictures for Brett and D4C. We all convene at the panel about the ethics of the temporal prime directive. Q is making an appearance and revealing their agenda. Agreed?"
All nodded.
Christy opened her mouth, but closed it again, shaking her head. Good, because no amount of translation was going to suffice. - Author: Elle Aycart
Kuokoa Translation quotes by Elle Aycart
#16. There was the gate next, which she(Liesel)clung to. A gang of tears trudged from her eyes as she held on and refused to go inside. People started to gather on the street, until Rosa Hubermann swore at them, after which they reversed back whence they came.

~A TRANSLATION OF ROSA HUBERMANN'S ANNOUNCEMENT~

'What are you arseholes looking at? - Author: Markus Zusak
Kuokoa Translation quotes by Markus Zusak
#17. Abba is not Hebrew, the language of liturgy, but Aramaic, the language of home and everyday life … We need to be wary of the suggestion … that the correct translation of Abba is 'Daddy.' Abba is the intimate word of a family circle where that obedient reverence was at the heart of the relationship, whereas Daddy is the familiar word of a family circle from which all thoughts of reverence and obedience have largely disappeared … The best English translation of Abba is simply 'Dear Father. - Author: Thomas Allan Smail
Kuokoa Translation quotes by Thomas Allan Smail
#18. Mr. Wilson affirms that "the only characteristic Nabokov trait" in my translation (aside from an innate "sado-masochistic" urge "to torture both the reader and himself," as Mr. Wilson puts it in a clumsy attempt to stick a particularly thick and rusty pin into my effigy) is my "addiction to rare and unfamiliar words." It does not occur to him that I may have rare and unfamiliar things to convey; that is his loss. - Author: Vladimir Nabokov
Kuokoa Translation quotes by Vladimir Nabokov
#19. Farsi Couplet:
Agar firdaus bar roo-e zameen ast,
Hameen ast-o hameen ast-o hameen ast.


English Translation:
If there is a paradise on earth,
It is this, it is this, it is this - Author: Amir Khusrau
Kuokoa Translation quotes by Amir Khusrau
#20. I would feel pretty embarrassed if I was doing what I do and I wasn't at least attempting the eloquent translation of the human experience in some way. - Author: El-P
Kuokoa Translation quotes by El-P
#21. Be as vigilantly on guard against translating such a sentence into the passive voice as you would against committing murder. - Author: Jay Rubin
Kuokoa Translation quotes by Jay Rubin
#22. In every art we are always obliged to return to the accepted means of expression, the conventional language of the art. What is a black-and-white drawing but a convention to which the beholder has become so accustomed that with his mind's eye he sees a complete equivalent in the translation from nature? - Author: Eugene Delacroix
Kuokoa Translation quotes by Eugene Delacroix
#23. Bye-bye. Nice knowing you. But if you are waiting for that perfect idea to strike like lightning during a dust storm (I live in New Mexico), you could be waiting a long time. Ideas are everywhere. EVERYWHERE. I can't walk to the bathroom without being hit with another idea. It's what you DO with that idea that matters.
Here is your mantra: BICHOK, BICHOK, BICHOK
Translation: Butt in chair, hands on keys. Just write. Every stinking day. - Author: Darynda Jones
Kuokoa Translation quotes by Darynda Jones
#24. The night is a strawberry. - Author: Louise Penny
Kuokoa Translation quotes by Louise Penny
#25. Every mother can easily imagine losing a child. Motherhood is always half loss anyway. The three-year-old is lost at five, the five-year-old at nine. We consort with ghosts, even as we sit and eat with, scold and kiss, their current corporeal forms. We speak to people who have vanished and, when they answer us, they do the same. Naturally, the information in these speeches is garbled in the translation. - Author: Karen Joy Fowler
Kuokoa Translation quotes by Karen Joy Fowler
#26. There is something sad about people going to bed. You can see they don't give a damn whether they're getting what they want out of life or not, you can see they don't ever try to understand what we're here for. They just don't care. Americans or not, they sleep no matter what, they're bloated mollusks, no sensibility, no trouble with their conscience.
I'd seen too many troubling things to be easy in my mind. I knew too much and not enough. I'd better go out, I said to myself, I'd better go out again. Maybe I'll meet Robinson. Naturally that was an idiotic idea, but I dreamed it up as an excuse for going out again, because no matter how I tossed and turned on my narrow bed, I couldn't snatch the tiniest scrap of sleep. Even masturbation, at times like that, provides neither comfort nor entertainment. Then you're really in despair. - Author: Louis Ferdinand Celine
Kuokoa Translation quotes by Louis Ferdinand Celine
#27. The word 'translation' comes, etymologically, from the Latin for 'bearing across'. Having been borne across the world, we are translated men. It is normally supposed that something always gets lost in translation; I cling, obstinately to the notion that something can also be gained. - Author: Salman Rushdie
Kuokoa Translation quotes by Salman Rushdie
#28. No opinions would be worth holding except by those who read works in the original. - Author: David Bellos
Kuokoa Translation quotes by David Bellos
#29. The original language of Christianity is translation. - Author: Lamin Sanneh
Kuokoa Translation quotes by Lamin Sanneh
#30. Through me is the way to the city of woe.
Through me is the way to sorrow eternal.
Through me is the way to the lost below. Justice moved my architect supernal.
I was constructed by divine power,
supreme wisdom, and love primordial.
Before me no created things were.
Save those eternal, and eternal I abide.
Abandon all hope, you who enter. - Author: Dante Alighieri
Kuokoa Translation quotes by Dante Alighieri
#31. Nothing she says or does would surprise me." Gideon faced the helm once more, putting his back to Barnaby. He wasn't about to go anywhere near Sara again, not the way he was feeling now. Let Barnaby deal with her today.
"Maybe not, but that doesn't mean it's nothing to worry about. You've got more schooling than I have, but isn't Lysistrata the play where the women refuse to have relations with their husbands until the men agree to stop going to war?"
With a groan, Gideon clenched the wheel. Lysistrata was among the many words of literature his father had forced down his throat once he was old enough to read. "Yes. But don't try to tell me she's teaching them that. It's Greek, for god's sake. They wouldn't understand a word, even if she knew it well enough to recite it."
"She knows it well enough to give them a free translation, I assure you. When I left her she was telling them the story with great enthusiasm."
Barnaby reached for the helm when Gideon swung away from it with an oath. "I should never have taken her aboard," he grumbled as he strode for the ladder. "I should have sent her back to England gagged and bound! - Author: Sabrina Jeffries
Kuokoa Translation quotes by Sabrina Jeffries
#32. I'd thought there'd be no winter in the desert, but winter arrived anyway - silently, suddenly. - Author: You Jin
Kuokoa Translation quotes by You Jin
#33. Translation is the art of failure. - Author: Umberto Eco
Kuokoa Translation quotes by Umberto Eco
#34. Our words are often only vague, inadequate descriptions of our thoughts. Something gets lost in translation every time we try to express our thoughts in words. And when the other person hears our words, something gets lost in translation again, because words mean different things to different people. "A long time" may mean 10 hours to one person, but 10 days to another. So when a thought is formed in my brain, and my mouth expresses it in words, and your ears hear it, and your brain processes it, your brain and my brain never truly see exactly the same thing. Communication is always just an approximation. - Author: Oliver Gaspirtz
Kuokoa Translation quotes by Oliver Gaspirtz
#35. You remember the Latin?"
"Of course. Vir prudens non contra ventum mingit." I couldn't see his face. Cease of the hood, but it could tell by the tone of his voice that he was completely serious. Or at least trying to be. I wrinkled my forehead as I attempted to translate.
"Wait a second," Seth said, pulling back his hood to demonstrate his utter confusion. "I thought their greeting was Non ducor, duco. 'I am not led, I lead.'"
Liam's shoulders began shaking just as I finished my rough translation. "A wise man does not urinate against the wind?" I pulled down my hood and looked at Liam. He winked at me, and it was pretty much the most beautiful thing I'd ever seen in my life. Normally, I'm very anti-wink when it comes to guys, but in this case it was a wink of absolution. It was a wink that meant Liam and I were actually going to be okay.
"You've been planning that all night, haven't you?" I reached over and squeezed his arm. It was the first time I had touched him in at least twenty-four hours, and his strong forearm felt so good beneath my fingertips. When he grabbed my hand and quickly brought my palm to his lips, I felt all the air leave my body. As much as I hated to admit it, for fear of sounding like a ridiculous, boy-crazed damsel in distress, it felt good to have my boyfriend back.
Taylor whipped back her hood, her blue eyes icy. "I'm so glad this is such a joke to you," she spat, clearly not in the mood for games.
Liam dropped my hand - Author: Lisa Roecker
Kuokoa Translation quotes by Lisa Roecker
#36. By reason of weird translation, many such sets of instructions read like poems anyhow. - Author: Brian Ferneyhough
Kuokoa Translation quotes by Brian Ferneyhough
#37. I've personally reached the point where the sound of MP3s are so uncompelling, because so much is lost in translation. - Author: Beck
Kuokoa Translation quotes by Beck
#38. In the wake of the Reformation, it was the Bible that reorganized Europe as modern nation-states. Developing vernaculars through Bible translation was only the first step towards linguistic nation-states. The Bible also provided the theological justification for fighting to build independent nation/states such as Holland. - Author: Vishal Mangalwadi
Kuokoa Translation quotes by Vishal Mangalwadi
#39. In fact I don't think of literature, or music, or any art form as having a nationality. Where you're born is simply an accident of fate. I don't see why I shouldn't be more interested in say, Dickens, than in an author from Barcelona simply because I wasn't born in the UK. I do not have an ethno-centric view of things, much less of literature. Books hold no passports. There's only one true literary tradition: the human. - Author: Carlos Ruiz Zafon
Kuokoa Translation quotes by Carlos Ruiz Zafon
#40. It is in the translation that the innocence lost after the first reading is restored under another guise, since the reader is once again faced with a new text and its attendant mystery. That is the inescapable paradox of translation, and also its wealth. - Author: Alberto Manguel
Kuokoa Translation quotes by Alberto Manguel
#41. Intrinsic to the concept of a translator's fidelity to the effect and impact of the original is making the second version of the work as close to the first writer's intention as possible. A good translator's devotion to that goal is unwavering. But what never should be forgotten or overlooked is the obvious fact that what we read in a translation is the translator's writing. The inspiration is the original work, certainly, and thoughtful literary translators approach that work with great deference and respect, but the execution of the book in another language is the task of the translator, and that work should be judged and evaluated on its own terms. Still, most reviewers do not acknowledge the fact of translation except in the most perfunctory way, and a significant majority seem incapable of shedding light on the value of the translation or on how it reflects or illuminates the original. - Author: Edith Grossman
Kuokoa Translation quotes by Edith Grossman
#42. Translation is a disturbing craft because there is precious little certainty about what we are doing, which makes it so difficult in this age of fervent belief and ideology, this age or greed and screed. - Author: Gregory Rabassa
Kuokoa Translation quotes by Gregory Rabassa
#43. During the 20th century, Chechnya was written about by local poets and novelists, as well as writers from Russia and Central Asia, but very little is available in English translation. - Author: Anthony Marra
Kuokoa Translation quotes by Anthony Marra
#44. Any translation which intends to perform a transmitting function cannot transmit anything but information-hence, something inessential. This is the hallmark of bad translations. - Author: Walter Benjamin
Kuokoa Translation quotes by Walter Benjamin
#45. Khusrau darya prem ka, ulti wa ki dhaar,
Jo utra so doob gaya, jo dooba so paar.

English Translation.

Oh Khusrau, the river of love
Runs in strange directions.
One who jumps into it drowns,
And one who drowns, gets across. - Author: Amir Khusrau
Kuokoa Translation quotes by Amir Khusrau
