EXAMPLES
Aquella noche quemó y abrasó el ama cuantos libros había en el corral y en toda la casa, y tales debieron de arder que merecían guardarse en perpetuos archivos; mas no lo permitió su suerte y la pereza del escrutiñador; y así, se cumplió el refrán en ellos de que pagan a las veces justos por pecadores.
That night the housekeeper burned to ashes all the books that were in the yard and in the whole house; and some must have been consumed that deserved preservation in everlasting archives, but their fate and the laziness of the examiner did not permit it, and so in them was verified the proverb that the innocent suffer for the guilty.
En lugar de demostrar solidaridad, moralizan, como si todos los problemas de la Europa mediterránea se debieran a la pereza o al carácter corrupto de sus ciudadanos.
Instead of showing solidarity, they moralize, as though all of the problems in Mediterranean Europe were the result of native laziness or its citizens’ corrupt nature.
Gauck dijo a los alemanes en términos inequívocos que habían de estar dispuestos a usar la fuerza, al menos como último recurso, y reprochó a aquellos de sus compatriotas “que utilizan la culpabilidad de Alemania por su pasado como escudo de la pereza o de un deseo de desentenderse del mundo”.
Gauck told Germans in no uncertain terms that they had to be willing to use force, at least as a last resort, and reproached those of his fellow citizens “who use Germany’s guilt for its past as a shield for laziness or a desire to disengage from the world.”
