Wise Quotes about Translation

May you find great value in these Translation quotes and sayings.

In many ways, it is easier to be a good giver than a good receiver.
The giver chooses the gift and the timing.
More important, societal and religious traditions
tend to elevate the status of giver and lower the status of receiver.
When the Bible (Acts 20:32-35) speaks of it being
more blessed to give than to receive,
I believe that a better translation might be
"take" rather than "receive," as the context
of that passage is "coveting."
Certainly there is nothing blessed about coveting,
stealing, begging, or demanding,
however the skill of graciously receiving a freely offered gift
is another matter entirely.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

I believe in God, but not as one thing,
not as an old man in the sky.
I believe that what people call God

and all the rest said was right.
It's just that the translations have gone wrong.
- John Lennon

If it is surely the means to the highest end we know,

We are not to expect to be translated from
despotism to liberty in a featherbed.
- Thomas Jefferson
