Famous quotes containing the words negative, translation and/or logic:

    In a country where misery and want were the foundation of the social structure, famine was periodic, death from starvation common, disease pervasive, thievery normal, and graft and corruption taken for granted, the elimination of these conditions in Communist China is so striking that negative aspects of the new rule fade in relative importance.
    Barbara Tuchman (1912–1989)

    Any translation which intends to perform a transmitting function cannot transmit anything but information—hence, something inessential. This is the hallmark of bad translations.
    Walter Benjamin (1892–1940)

    You can no more bridle passions with logic than you can justify them in the law courts. Passions are facts and not dogmas.
    Alexander Herzen (1812–1870)
