Re: 這句英文是什麼意思呢?

"Honesty is as much abandoned by the theft of a dime as of a dollar." = 偷一分錢的不誠實等於偷一塊錢的不誠實

"Never concede to a friend any more power over the lives of others than you would to your worst enemy" = 不要輕易的把權力分發出去.

Roughly translated, feel free to refine it.

Re: 4/19 (Mon.) The Blind Side (Host: Robert Chao)

Besides being a story with American football as the background, the word "blind" in "blind side" also refers to how the story-plot transcends racial boundary. The football part of the story is actually just a sideshow. This movie/title serves as a reminder that in a pluralistic society, how we often...

Re: An inspiring story for learning English

Let me put it this way...

Fluency is the first base,

Articulate is the second

and Eloquence is the third.

But with effort and little bit of luck, almost anybody can hit it out of the ball park.

When using words to convey meanings, there are a few things to consider. 1. the literal 2. the metaphorical 3. the contextual 4. the intented 5. the perceived On a good day, all of the above should converge to ...

Re: 這位參賽者因為說了不恰當的笑話, 被川普Fired!!

For the sake of TV rating, Mr. Trump may have the authority in determining what is "恰當" in this instance. But, in real life, self-referential use of the phrase "white trash" is quite common. I hope this dramatic demostration of managerial tyranny isn't reflective of what is typical in the corporate ...

Re: 4/3 (Sat.) Happiness and Money (host: David Jr.)

In reality, once you have shifted your income bracket favorably, you may find yourself in a different social circle that are far more snobbish. Soon, your reference of how much money is enough also shifts. Before, you humbly thought it would be nice to just have one LV bag and that is enough to put ...
