Allow me to translate some Serbian aphorisms for you. (NB: “aforizam” does not even translate to “aphorism”, and my English is nowhere near good enough to do this)

  • We like the truth so much that everybody got her own. – Dragan Šušić
  • Kosovo has been and will be Serbian. Its final status will be decided too. – Svetislav Travica
  • We will invent new enemies. Our old ones are of no more use to us. – Milan Simić
  • This government unites the nation. Everybody is against it. – Zoran Stanojević
  • The state doesn’t allow things to be done willy-nilly. That’s why we have organized crime. – Aleksandar Čotrić
  • If you can’t figure out your way out of this situation, change the situation. – Duško Radović
  • It’s not good when people expand the frontiers of love for their country. – Milovan Vitezović
  • Books were always lined up against the wall. – Milenko Pajović

    Damn that one could serve as the motto of the current administration in the U.S.!
