1. "El corazón, movido por el amor, quiere volar.Mi pecho contiene un estallido de alas,Las manos de una muchacha panderetera."
Author: Abbas Ibn Al Ahnaf
2. "?Maeniel felt this was why all the great sages never wrote anything down. In the final analysis, scriptures are futile things, dependent as they are on the intentions of the interpreter. All too often too literal a mind can lead human students into strange follies. Sometimes it is better to allow the searchers to try to plumb the depths of the great mystery on their own and accept that not every one of those taking the road will see the same end."
Author: Alice Borchardt
3. "Mortal beauty often makes me ache, and mortal grandeur can fill me with that longing...but Paris, Paris drew me close to her heart, so I forgot myself entirely. Forgot the damned and questing preternatural thing that doted on mortal skin and mortal clothing. Paris overwhelmed, and lightened and rewarded more richly than any promise."
Author: Anne Rice
4. "I have met . . . every week a clever undergraduate, every quarter a dull American don, discovers for the first time what some Shakespeare play really meant. . . . The revolution in thought and sentiment which has occurred in my own lifetime is so great that I belong, mentally, to Shakespeare's world far more than to that of these recent interpreters. I see--I feel it in my bones--I know beyond argument--that most of their interpretations are merely impossible; they involve a way of looking at things which was not known in 1914, much less in the Jacobean period. This daily confirms my suspicion of the same approach to Plato or the New Testament. The idea that any man or writer should be opaque to those who lived in the same culture, spoke the same language, shared the same habitual imagery and unconscious assumptions, and yet transparent to those who have none of these advantages, is in my opinion preposterous."
Author: C.S. Lewis
5. "I did. Mr. Rochester, reading my countenance, saw I had done so. His fury was wrought to the highest: he must yield to it for a moment, whatever followed; he crossed the floor and seized my arm and grasped my waist. He seemed to devour me with his flaming glance: physically, I felt, at the moment, powerless as stubble exposed to the draught and glow of a furnace: mentally, I still possessed my soul, and with it the certainty of ultimate safety. The soul, fortunately, has an interpreter—often an unconscious, but still a truthful interpreter—in the eye. My eye rose to his; and while I looked in his fierce face I gave an involuntary sigh; his gripe was painful, and my over-taxed strength almost exhausted."
Author: Charlotte Brontë
6. "I really did not expect any Grace to answer, for the laugh was as tragic, as preternatural a laugh as any I ever heard; and, but that it was high noon, and that no circumstances of ghostliness accompanied the curious cachination; but that neither scene nor season favoured fear, I should have been superstitiously afraid. However, the event showed me I was a fool for entertaining a sense even of surprise."
Author: Charlotte Brontë
7. "Lefever describes his financing plan with modesty:"'Our detailed budget is realistic, but does not take into account the inflation that may occur before September 1983. The one place it could cut or reduce is item 7, the simultaneous interpreter services, if these services could be provided gratis by the U.S. government.'""In other words, the only way to make a saving on a U.S.-subsidized project is to take money out of another U.S.-subsidized column."
Author: Christopher Hitchens
8. "An important United Nations environmental conference went past 6:00 in the evening when the interpreters' contracted working conditions said they could leave. They left, abandoning the delegates unable to talk to each other in their native languages. The French head of the committee, who had insisted on speaking only in French throughout the week suddenly demonstrated the ability to speak excellent English with English-speaking delegates."
Author: Daniel Yergin
9. "I'm not really a songwriter - I'm an interpreter. So in a sense I am an actress first and foremost. I act out the songs, and I lead with my heart."
Author: Diana Ross
10. "I onda kada sam mislio da je pravo vreme da odem, da zaboravim, i kada sam verovao da mi je svejedno, ona bi banula niotkud i sve bi pocelo ponovno... Ne znam zašto me taj pogled toliko ocaravao, a da budem iskren, nisam se preterano ni otimao kada je bila u mojoj blizini. Sa srcem ne možeš kako želiš..."
Author: Ðorde Balaševic
11. "Interpreters package and then sell, rent, or impose upon us artificially flavored illusions of truth, salvation, enlightenment, and happiness that are built upon their goals. That twisted information and those errant goals and are often very different from those of the original teachers that these interpreters are borrowing moral authority from. Following our own inner guidance would yield better results than following the village idiot. Neither Buddha nor Jesus was waiting for a Buddha or a Jesus to come solve their personal problems or those of humanity. The key to whatever we need is within us. The job of uncovering it is ours to do."
Author: Doug Ten Rose
12. "Anyhow, with their extraordinary gift for, and experience in, affairs of the heart from the double point of view, both of the man and of the woman it is not difficult to see that these people have a special work to do as reconcilers and interpreters of the two sexes to each other."
Author: Edward Carpenter
13. "All knowledge that is about human society, and not about the natural world, is historical knowledge, and therefore rests upon judgment and interpretation. This is not to say that facts or data are nonexistent, but that facts get their importance from what is made of them in interpretation… for interpretations depend very much on who the interpreter is, who he or she is addressing, what his or her purpose is, at what historical moment the interpretation takes place."
Author: Edward W. Said
14. "In Russia, as I sat there day after day wearing headphones, listening to the interpreter struggle to make our words relevant, I wondered if we could establish meaningful rapport with a nation that had never seen raisins dance in dark glasses on TV...never had a garage sale."
Author: Erma Bombeck
15. "De resto, com que posso contar comigo? Uma acuidade horrível das sensações, e a compreensão profunda de estar sentindo... Uma inteligência aguda para me destruir, e um poder de sonho sôfrego de me entreter... Uma vontade morta e uma reflexão que a embala, como a' um filho vivo... Sim, croché..."
Author: Fernando Pessoa
16. "Cuáles ideas nunca supe, ¡pero qué maravilla! Y la nostalgia de lo pasado, de lo vivido, de lo soñado me iba suavizando el ceño. Y por sobre las ruinas del Bombay presente, el casco de lo que fue, en una nube desflecada, rompiendo un cielo brumoso, me iba retrocediendo a mi infancia hasta que volvía a ser niño y a salir el sol, y me veía abajo por esa carretera una tarde, corriendo con mis hermanos. Y felices, inconscientes, despilfarrando el chorro de nuestras vidas pasábamos frente a Bombay persiguiendo un globo. Con su aguja gruesa una vitrola en la cantina tocaba un disco rayado:«Un amor que se me fue, otro amor que me olvidó, por el mundo yo voy penando. Amorcito quién te arrullará, pobrecito que perdió su nido, sin hallar abrigo muy sólito va..." Fernando Vallejo en La virgen de los sicarios"
Author: Fernando Vallejo
17. "Every great architect is - necessarily - a great poet. He must be a great original interpreter of his time, his day, his age."
Author: Frank Lloyd Wright
18. "The duke contents himself mainly with attempting to rule the world and other suchlike nonsense. When one is guiding the patterns of the social universe, a single spinster preternatural is unlikely to cause one undue distress."
Author: Gail Carriger
19. "Jesus Christ is our supreme commander, but He operates only through His word, which is unquestionably a training manual. However, He has many interpreters, and few people see the Bible as a true training manual."
Author: Gary North
20. "Dice eso antes, sobre los accidentes, sobre no saber nunca cuando uno es un giro en la carretera y cuando se trata de un tenedor, sin saber que tu vida está cambiando, hasta que ya sucedió."
Author: Gayle Forman
21. "No story is the same to us after a lapse of time; or rather we who read itare no longer the same interpreters."
Author: George Eliot
22. "To inquire into what God has made is the main function of the imagination. It is aroused by facts, is nourished by facts; seeks for higher and yet higher laws in those facts; but refuses to regard science as the sole interpreter of nature, or the laws of science as the only region of discovery."
Author: George MacDonald
23. "On certain occasions art can shake very ordinary spirits, and whole worlds can be revealed by its clumsiest interpreters."
Author: Gustave Flaubert
24. "Foreign journalists have to have an approved interpreter assigned them, which they have to pay for, who also acts as guide. As an Iranian, even writing for foreign media, I've been mercifully unrestricted."
Author: Hooman Majd
25. "I wasn't built for running away from monsters. I wanted desperately to run toward them--track them down, kill them. Luckily, I was used to restraining myself, used to acting human even when I wasn't, and the human part of my brain reminded me that right now, preternatural beasties weren't exactly my primary concern. Someone had made a strong attempt at killing me this morning...."
Author: Jennifer Lynn Barnes
26. "This is why you don't call the police. Or Preternatural Control. No matter what. Ever. If I'd doubted that rule--and I was fairly sure I never had--I certainly never would have again. My skin itched just talking to the authorities....The police department had more than a few open cases with my name on them--figuratively, and I had no desire to make that literal [where they connected me to] the vigilante responsible for dozens of area beastie slayings...."
Author: Jennifer Lynn Barnes
27. "So he had them into the slaughter house, where was a butcher killing a sheep. And behold, the sheep was quiet and took her death patiently. Then said the Interpreter, "You must learn of this sheep to suffer, and put up wrongs without murmurings and complaints. Behold how quietly she takes her death! And without objecting she suffereth her skin to be pulled over her ears. Your King doth call you his sheep."
Author: John Bunyan
28. "A great interpreter of life ought not himself to need interpretation."
Author: John Morley
29. "I shall destroy capitalism! Do you hear! I shall destroy every single capitalist! And I shall start with you, you dog, if you don't help us with the bomb!'Allan noted that the had managed to be both a rat and a dog in the course of a minute or so. And that Stalin was being rather inconsistent, because now he wanted to use Allan's services after all.But Allan wasn't going to sit there and listen to this abuse any longer. He had come to Moscow to help them out, not to be shouted at. Stalin would have to manage on his own.'I've been thinking,' said Allan.'What,' said Stalin angrily.'Why don't you shave off that moustache?'With that the dinner was over, because the interpreter fainted."
Author: Jonas Jonasson
30. "The theist and the scientist are rival interpreters of nature, the one retreats as the other advances."
Author: Joseph McCabe
31. "We offered her flowers and signalled to her with our penises, but she did not respond with joy.''The men with the extra skins didn't look happy. They looked angry.''We went towards them to greet them, but they ran away.'Snowman can imagine. The sight of these preternaturally calm, well-muscled men advancing en masse, singing their unusual music, green eyes glowing, blue penises waving in unison, both hands outstretched like extras in a zombie film, would have to have been alarming."
Author: Margaret Atwood
32. "Tu precisas-te entreter... Para isso escrever; isto é, trabalhar. Mas, meu caro, «entreter» significa passar tempo. Ora o tempo passa acelerado em demasia; não necessita de impulsos. Os homens deviam procurar «entreter» o tempo, e não entreterem-se a si... Eu é isso que faço... Penso no passado, revivo os dias que passaram... Assim, levanto uma barreira entre o passado e o futuro. O futuro é porém um óptimo saltador... salta todas as barreiras, vai-se tornando no presente e eu pouco resultado alcanço... Escreves para não te aborreceres... Ah! como seria feliz se me conseguisse aborrecer!..."
Author: Mário De Sá Carneiro
33. "My interpreter Sayuri is folding a piece of notebook paper. She is at step 21, where the crane's body is inflated. The directions show a tiny puff besides an arrow pointing at the bird. It makes sense if you already know what to do. Otherwise, it's wonderfully surreal: Put a cloud inside a bird."
Author: Mary Roach
34. "For all her culture's attention to the physical, it seemingly has little to salve the creatural anguish of losing someone else's body, their touch, their heat, their oceanic heart...she doesn't want another body, she wants the body she loved, the forceps scar across his cheek that she traced with her hand, his penis, its elegant sweep to the side, the preternaturally soft skin. One wants what one has loved, not the idea of love."
Author: Michelle Latiolais
35. "In Iraq, interpreters were ten times more likely to be killed than were U.S. troops."
Author: Nataly Kelly
36. "We know the secret of the world is profound, but who or what shall be our interpreter, we know not."
Author: Ralph Waldo Emerson
37. "Poetry is the perpetual endeavor to express the spirit of the thing, to pass the brute body and search the life and reason which causes it to exist;—to see that the object is always flowing away, whilst the spirit or necessity which causes it subsists. Its essential mark is that it betrays in every word instant activity of mind, shown in new uses of every fact and image, in preternatural quickness or perception of relations. All its words are poems. It is a presence of mind that gives a miraculous command of all means of uttering the thought and feeling of the moment. The poet squanders on the hour an amount of life that would more than furnish the seventy years of the man that stands next him."
Author: Ralph Waldo Emerson
38. "I'm an interpreter of music."
Author: Sarah Brightman
39. "I am an interpreter of music rather than a composer of it."
Author: Sarah Brightman

Author: Sherrilyn Kenyon

Author: T.S. Eliot
44. "There is a Hand to turn the time,Though thy Glass today be run,Till the Light hath brought the Towers lowFind the last poor Preterite one . . .Till the Riders sleep by ev'ry road,All through our crippl'd Zone,With a face in ev'ry MountainsideAnd a Soul in ev'ry stoneNow Everybody -"
Author: Thomas Pynchon
45. "That's what Jesus meant," whispers the ghost of Slothrop's first American ancestor William, "venturing out on the Sea of Galilee. He saw it from the lemming point of view. Without the millions who had plunged and drowned, there could have been no miracle. The successful loner was only the other part of it: the last piece to the jigsaw puzzle, whose shape had already been created by the Preterite, like the last blank space on the table.""Wait a minute. You people didn't have jigsaw puzzles.""Aw, shit."
Author: Thomas Pynchon

Author: Truman Capote
47. "What was I, then? I hadn'tbecome a European either, not in France and certainly not inEngland. So what were you, Ricardito? Maybe what Mrs. Richardsoncalled me in her fits of temper: a little pissant, nothing but aninterpreter, somebody, as my colleague Salomon Toledano liked todefine us, who is only when he isn't, a hominid who exists when hestops being what he is so that what other people think and say canpass through him more easily."
Author: VARGAS LLOSA, MARIO

Today's Quote

My feet they are sore, and my limbs they are weary; Long is the way, and the mountains are wild;Soon will the twilight close moonless and dreary Over the path of the poor orphan child.Why did they send me so far and so lonely, Up where the moors spread and gray rocks are piled?Men are hard-hearted, and kind angels only Watch o'er the steps of a poor orphan child.Ye, distant and soft, the night-breeze is blowing, Clouds there are none, and clear starts beam mild;God, in His mercy, protection is showing, Comfort and hope to the poor orphan child.Ev'n should I fall o'er the broken bridge passing, Or stray in the marshes, by false lights beguiled,Still will my Father, with promise and blessing, Take to his bosom the poor orphan child.There is a thought that for strength should avail me; Thought both of shelter and kindred despoiled;Heaven is a home, and a rest will not fail me; God is a friend to the poor orphan child."
Author: Charlotte Brontë
