YOU CANNOT BURN THE CANDLE AT BOTH ENDS

英文諺語 YOU CANNOT BURN THE CANDLE AT BOTH ENDS 勿過分消耗體力;蠟燭不能兩頭燒

米德佳提供中文到英文翻譯服務,含英文編修
MEANING
Candles are meant to stand up vertically. In this position they can burn at only one end. They can burn at both ends only if they are held horizontally, but they will burn at an increased rate and eventually extinguish. That’s the point of this idiom, continuing at this pace is fatiguing.
To work or do other things from early in the morning until late at night and so get very little rest; to exhaust oneself, especially by being up late and getting up early to work, therefore working extremely or excessively hard for good health or peace of mind.
If you are working or studying too hard, it would be said you are burning the candle at both ends. The inference is that you won’t be able to keep this up for too long. You will soon find yourself burnt out and over tired, so rest and play are some of the answers to working too hard.

WORDS CUT MORE THAN SWORDS

英文諺語 WORDS CUT MORE THAN SWORDS 舌劍利於刀劍
米德佳提供中文到英文翻譯服務,含英文編修
MEANING
A sharp tongue wounds.
Words are powerful because when spoken out loud they carry energy, sound and frequency, which are some of the building blocks of matter. Furthermore, they carry information that can be used as knowledge to create or destroy things. When you acquire the right knowledge and experience it into wisdom, it becomes very powerful and can be used to expand power.
The written word is more to be feared than the physical force. ‘Tyranny has not enemy as formidable as the pen,’ wrote William Cobbett. As a commentary on the 20th century it can be suggested that although the pen is mightier than the sword, even mightier than the pen is television and the Internet.
“Words cut deeper than knives. A knife can be pulled out, words are embedded into our souls.”
William Chapman

WHILE THERE’S LIFE, THERE’S HOPE 英文諺語

WHILE THERE’S LIFE, THERE’S HOPE 留得青山在,不怕沒柴燒

米德佳提供中文到英文翻譯服務,含英文編修
MEANING
Never give up; as long as you are alive, you should be hopeful, because it is possible that your situation will improve. “There is no medicine like hope, no incentive so great, and no tonic so powerful as expectation of something tomorrow” (Marden) Hope, is a word used too commonly but not defined very clearly. When people hope on something, they are simply wishing for it to happen.
EXAMPLE
Sarah: “What will we do, now that our house and everything we own has burned up?”
Fred: “While there’s life there’s hope.”

VIRTUE IS ITS OWN REWARD

WHERE THERE’S A WILL THERE’S A WAY

英文諺語 WHERE THERE’S A WILL THERE’S A WAY 有志者事竟成

米德佳提供中文到英文翻譯服務,含英文編修
MEANING
This is a famous saying. It means that you can accomplish anything if you work hard; in this case, “will” means a strong motivation to accomplish something. So you can understand the phrase to mean “If you have a strong motivation to accomplish something, there’s a way to accomplish it.” This will be the case even if it is challenging, difficult, or seemingly impossible.
Will-power is the greatest driving force in man. It helps him get through all the difficulties in life. Will-power is the most essential ingredient of success. It enables a person to find a way to overcome the obstacle in his path. He continues his journey towards his chosen goal. A man who loses heart at the sight of failure can never achieve his goal. But a man who is determined to attain his objectives is not disheartened by failures. One should not lose heart during adversities.
The real essence of life lies in struggle. Determination and calmness help a person in his Endeavor. They provide him inspiration to achieve success. A wise man accepts the challenges of life with a calm mind. Our ancient scriptures also advocate that one should do one’ duty with determination. One should have a firm determination to strive and win.
Why this proverb is so popular? This idiom is probably so memorable because of its two ‘w’ sounds. Alliteration is often used in proverbs to help them to stick in the mind.
EXAMPLE
Paul: “I have no doubt that Jessie will find a publisher for her novel. Where there’s a will, there’s a way.”

WELL BEGUN IS HALF DONE 英文諺語

WELL BEGUN IS HALF DONE 好的開始是成功的一半

米德佳提供中文到英文翻譯服務,含英文編修
MEANING
beginning a project well ensures that the project will require not much more effort to finish it, as well as greatly increasing the chances of success.  Beginning a project well makes it easier to do the rest.; Once you have begun a project well, you do not need to put in much more effort to finish it.
Said as a warning that you think your conversation is being overheard,  as it emphasizes that someone may be listening.
ESSAY
It often happens that something which at first seems very difficult is soon finished when we have once managed to make a good beginning. For instance, in learning to swim we may try hard, day after day, for a long time, without seeming to make the least progress. All of a sudden some day we find to our delight that we can make one or two strokes, and henceforward progress is rapid and easy. In this case the great difficulty is to gain confidence in the buoyancy of the water, and, when that is once acquired, nothing else is needed but regular practice.
A similar difficulty of gaining self-confidence renders it hard to make the first beginning in many other physical accomplishments. When a child in its first efforts to walk has learnt to keep its balance for one or two steps, it has thereby got over the great impediment in the way of further progress. In learning to skate and ride a bicycle the great difficulty is, to learn by our own experience that it is really possible to keep our balance, when supported on what seems to be a very precarious foundation.
In acquiring new branches of knowledge it is also generally true that well begun is half done; but not quite for the same reason. In learning a new language, it is very irksome to master the rudiments that have to be learnt first, such as the alphabet, the pronunciation, and the elements of the grammar. After these are thoroughly learnt, the most unpleasant part of the task is finished, and a good foundation is laid for the acquisition of the language.
Only it must be noticed that the proverb says “Well begun is half done.” A bad commencement actually impedes the progress of composition, as it has either to be written all over again, or must be amended by many alterations, the making of which entails a large expenditure of time and trouble.
EXAMPLE
Simon: “I’m afraid I’ll never be able to finish writing this report.”
Fred: “You’ve already written a good introduction. Well begun is half done.”

WALLS HAVE EARS

英文諺語 WALLS HAVE EARS 壁上有耳

米德佳提供中文到英文翻譯服務,含英文編修
MEANING
Said as a warning that you think your conversation is being overheard,  as it emphasizes that someone may be listening.
This phrase was used on many propaganda posters during World War II. It was basically a reminder to civilians involved in the war effort to be wary about what they spoke about, or to whom, for fear of information getting into the hands of enemy spies.
The conversation is easily overheard, someone is listening, as in Be careful what you say; the walls have ears. This saying may come from a story about Dionysius of Syracuse (430–367 b.c.), who had an ear-shaped cave cut and connected between the rooms of his palace so that he could hear what was being said from another room. Similar listening posts were installed in other palaces over the centuries, including the Louvre in Paris. In English the phrase was first recorded in its present form in 1620.
EXAMPLE
“I Don’t say anything about our company sales plan here. Walls have ears."

VARIETY IS THE SPICE OF LIFE 英文諺語

VARIETY IS THE SPICE OF LIFE 變化是生活的調味料


米德佳提供中文到英文翻譯服務,含英文編修
MEANING
Said to emphasize that doing many different things, or often changing what you do, makes life interesting; you should try many different kinds of experiences, because trying different things keeps life interesting.
The proverb tells that variety of things and ideas in the life of man brings him fun and joy as the spices of life like joy and fun make him enthusiastic and enjoyable like different flavors of spices add to the taste of food and make the food palatable. Each spice is different in flavors and they add to the taste of food. To increase the taste of food and for better intake of food, we add spices of different flavors while preparing the food we want. The tasteless or less tasted food is neglected to be taken in. Different flavors are needed for the different dishes. Otherwise the same flavor looses its taste after sometime because the variety of spices makes the food eatable.
Similarly variety is needed in every sphere of life. The same routine life of the family like going to job coming back home and doing household work makes life monotonous and we lose our creativity in life. There should be some changes in the lifestyle of people. When we engage in the monotonous work continuously for several hours and days, we feel very tired. We should have some break to carry on the life afresh. Engaging ourselves in other than our routine work entertains the mind and provides opportunities to refresh us. Change always brings happiness and happiness always makes the people lively. We may go to the hill stations and other worth seeing places of our interest which we can afford. Such changes in life make the life charming and happy and the variety fills our hearts with joy and pleasure.
EXAMPLE
“I usually spend my summer vacation camping, but I think I should try something different this year. Variety is the spice of life.
