Below is translation of 2 of my fav songs.. pretty old ones though.. the chinese name of which is 《昨夜的渡輪上》and also 《前程錦繡》
The fourth ancient purpose is to translate the world’s great books, the universal works in which the human spirit is enshrined and lives: poetry, ogy, sociology and politics, of individual and social behavior. These are the works which, in principle, should be retranslated for each generation, where the universal outweighs the cultural.
Translation is linked with an awareness of democratic potential: it is a weapon against obscurantism, the realization that the material, social and cultural inequalities often associated with ethnic and linguistic group as have to be at least drastically reduced.
