Have you been listening to Chinese President Xi's speeches on Europe tour? It's so impressing! Especially, I was impressed by
the quotes he cited. I believe those quotes were driving the interpreters crazy. I doubt if they fully undersdood them and interpreted in such a short time.
I feel like translating some of President Xi's quotes from his speeches, would you like to join me?
I managed to translate some of them, the rest will be left for you to do the job. Hope you're a better translater.
Here they are:
A single flower does not make spring, while one hundred flowers in full blossom bring spring to the garden
The ocean is vast, for it refuses no rivers
Victor Hugo once said, "There is a prospect greater than the sea, and it is the sky; there is a prospect greater than the sky, and it is the human soul."
Napoleon Bonaparte once said that there are two forces in the world, the sword and the spirit. In the long run, the sword will always be conquered by the spirit.
when a glass at the visage of vernal breeze, I know that thousands of flowers of purple and red set spring aglow.
One man's meat is another man's poison
Since wars begin in the minds of men, it is in the minds of men that the defences of peace must be constructed.
The uneven matters, are also matters of love!
Treat the others as you would like to be treated
Bury the hatchet
We don't ask for troubles, yet we're not afraid of one.
As the matter of international relations, one can choose a friend, but not a neighbor
Some people always have preconceived ideas towards China
Take the bull by the horns
What's your translation:
