友誼就像陶器,破了可以修補;愛情好比鏡子,一旦打破就難重圓。(美國幽默作家比林斯.J.)

1.An apple a day keeps the doctor away .
每天一個蘋果就用不著看醫生
西方的人覺得蘋果是含有豐富營養的水果,常吃蘋果對身體健康非常有幫助,所以就有這句諺語,認為常吃蘋果就不會生病,就不用看醫生。同樣有一句諺語也有相同的意思,就是:
Eat an apple going to bed, make the doctor beg his bread. 
睡前吃個蘋果,醫生就得討飯。
就是說每天睡前一顆蘋果,對身體健康很有幫助,醫生的生意就會門可羅雀。

 

一個問題不會只有一個答案,那這句的諺語怎麼說呢?
There are two sides to every question.
每個問題都有正反兩方面看法。
公說公有理,婆說婆有理。

美國情緣 經典愛情名句,以星空創出永恆的情話

===========================================================

1. That life is not merely a series of meaningless accidents or coincidences. But rather it''s tapestry of events..... that culminate in an exquisite, sublime plan.

人生並非一連串毫無頭緒的意外巧合。 而是錯綜糾葛的事件結合。冥冥之中,已被細密莊嚴的編排好。

2. That''s what happens when people get hooked on the New Age life. They sit at home burning candles for Mr. Right when Mr. Good Enough for Right Now is waiting at the corner bar.

當人迷上新世紀生活就會這樣,坐在家裡燒蠟燭等著白馬王子,卻不管黑馬王子就在眼前。

3. Once in your lifetime, someone comes along whom you are absolutely meant to be with. Everything feels great, stars aligned body and spirit are in balance.

在人生中,你會遇到某人,那個獨一無二的人。一切美妙極了,星晨閃耀,身心調和。

4. Everything''s predestined. We don''t have any choice? I think we make our own decisions. But fates sends signs and how we read them decides whether we''re happy or not. Little signals. Fortunate accidents, lucky discoveries. Like Columbus and America.

一切命定,我們毫無選擇? 我認為我們自己下決定,但命運送出徵兆。 如何去解讀才是關鍵。 徵兆。 幸運的偶然,幸運的發現,就像哥倫布發現新大陸一樣。

5. This mystery guy I met in a million and a half hours ago. A guy I don''t even remember, except for this vague picture I have inside my head. It was just a few seconds a fragment really. And it was like..... in that moment.

那個幾年前預見的神祕男子,一個我幾乎不記得,只剩下模糊映像在腦海裡的人。 雖然很短暫很片段。 但一切就像....永恆。

6. You figure it out, you realize that life isn''t some elaborate stage play with directions for the actors. Life is a mess. It''s chaos personified.

你向清楚,瞭解人生並非一劇細膩編排的舞台劇。 人生一團糟,原本就是混沌無常。
