سيتعين على التاريخ أن يسجل أن أكبر مأساة في فترة الانتقال الاجتماعي هذه لم تكن الضجة القاسية للناس السيئين ، ولكن الصمت المروع للناس الطيبين.

η ιστορία θα πρέπει να καταγράψει ότι η μεγαλύτερη τραγωδία αυτής της περιόδου κοινωνικής μετάβασης δεν ήταν η έντονη οργή των κακών ανθρώπων, αλλά η τρομακτική σιωπή των καλών ανθρώπων.

La historia tendrá que registrar que la mayor tragedia de este período de transición social no fue el clamor estridente de la gente mala, sino el silencio atroz de la gente buena.

歷史將不得不記錄,這個社會轉型時期最大的悲劇不是壞人的喧囂,而是善良人民的駭人聽聞的沉默。
