館長的話:
現在的世界,不也是如此?


英國文豪狄更斯 (Charles Dickens) 以法國大革命為時代背景所撰之名著–「雙城記」開場之引言

這是最好的時代,也是最壞的時代;
這是智慧的時代,也是愚蠢的時代;
這是篤信的時代,也是疑慮的時代;
這是光明的季節,也是黑暗的季節;
這是希望的春天,也是絕望的冬天;
我們什麼都有,也什麼都沒有;
我們全都會上天堂,也全都會下地獄。

原文如下

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way- in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only.
