That's because there were still racists around that needed to be addressed. I wonder if you know that the black sun in your icon is a common nazi symbol.

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.

yet you get fired from google if you judge a person by the content of their character, rather than the group they belong to.

Mam marzenie, że pewnego dnia naród nasz wzniesie się na wyżyny prawdziwego sensu swojej wiary i uzna za prawdę oczywistą, że wszyscy ludzie zostali stworzeni równymi - Martin Luther King

what's the difference between (śnie) & (marzenie) ?

May 9, 2017


'śnie' is Locative of 'sen'

So, 'sen' is a dream that you dream at night, simple as that.

'marzenie' is a dream that you want to be an actor when you grow up.

Thanks! Before your explanation I assumed marzenie encompassed all meanings of the English dream. Now I differentiate:

  • sen: what may happen during sleep.

  • marzenie: vision, prophecy, fantasy. MLK's speech would have worked almost as well with the more accurate vision (still rejected by Duo!), but flows better with the monosyllabic dream.

  • ????: daydream

  • mrzonka (pejorative!): chimæra, crazy idea, pipe dream, phantasm

  • halucynacja: hallucination; waking dream

Does anyone know a Polish word for daydream without the negative tone of mrzonka?

"daydreaming" is "śnić na jawie", therefore "daydream" would be "sen na jawie".

I do have to say that I have doubts about your translations of "marzenie"... maybe 'fantasy' in some contexts, but why "vision" (wizja) or "prophecy" (proroctwo)?
