Antebellum/ 内战前夕 / (nèizhàn qiánxī)  

1. The past is never dead. It's not even past.

过去的永无止境。它们不能被称为过去。

(ɡuòqùde yǒnɡwú zhǐjìnɡ. tāmén bùnénɡ bè ichēnɡwéi ɡuòqù.) 

2. Sometimes what looks like anger is really just fear. Things are not always what they appear to be.

有些时候看起来愤怒的其实都是恐惧。事情并不总是表面上看起来的那样。

(yǒuxiē shíhòu kànqǐlái fènnùde qíshí dōushì kǒnɡjù. shìqínɡ bìnɡbù zǒnɡshì biǎomiànshànɡ kànqǐlái de nàyànɡ.) 

3. The unresolved past can certainly wreak havoc on the present. 

未解决的过去肯定会对现在造成严重破坏。

(wèijiějué de ɡuòqù kěndìnɡ huì duì xiànzài zàochénɡ yánzhònɡ pòhuài.) 

4. Wherever you were before, whatever small freedoms you might have enjoyed, I'm here to tell you that is over.

无论你以前在哪里,无论你曾经享受过多少小的自由,我在这里要告诉你,这些都结束了。

(wúlùn nǐ yǐqián zài nǎlǐ, wúlùn nǐ cénɡjīnɡ xiǎnɡshòu ɡuò duōshǎo xiǎode zìyóu, wǒzài zhèlǐ yào ɡàosùnǐ, zhèxiē dōujiéshùle.) 

5. We must choose our moment wisely.

 我们必须明智地选择我们的时机。

(wǒmén bìxū mínɡzhìdì xuǎnzé wǒmén de shíjī.) 

6. That's good, Eden. Real good. Everything will be alright now. And you can stop that crying.

这很好,伊顿。非常好。一切都平安了。你别哭了。

(zhè hěnhǎo, yīdùn.fēichánɡ hǎo. yīqiē dōu pínɡānle.nǐbié kūle.) 

7. You ain't no leader. You're just a talker.

你不是一个可以当领导者的人。你只会不停的说,纸上谈兵。

(nǐ bùshì yīɡè kěyǐdānɡ lǐnɡdǎozhě de rén.nǐ zhīhuì bùtínɡde shuō, zhǐshànɡ tánbīnɡ.)
