An Example of Polish Philosophy

Happiness is something we can imagine but not experience. 

Leszek Kołakowski


Now you know why the Polish national anthem is so ... well, negative:

Poland has not yet perished,
So long as we still live.
What the alien force has taken from us,
We shall retrieve with a sabre.
March, march, Dąbrowski,
From the Italian land to Poland.
Under your command
We shall rejoin the nation.
