The best translation is not that which is most like the original but which is the most different from it.

G. Bradford

Prayer is translation. A man translates himself into a child asking for all there is in a language he has barely mastered.

Leonard Cohen

Poetry is what gets lost in translation.

Robert Frost

What is lost in a good or excellent translation is precisely the best.

Karl Wilhelm Friedrich Schlegel
