50句英语成语

50句英语成语
50句英语成语:字面和实际意思大不同

1. A cat may look at a king.

[字面意思] 猫也可以看国王。

[解释] 无名小卒也可以评论大人物。人皆可以为尧舜。不要因为别人的资格不够老,或经验不如你多,就不让他发表意见。

2. A penny saved is a penny earned.

[字面意思] 节省一个便士就等于挣了一个便士。

[解释] 省钱是明智的做法。省一分就是赚一分。不要因为钱的数目不大就不把它当一回事,瞧不起小钱是不对的,要记住A penny saved is a penny earned这条经验。

3. A watched pot never boils.

[字面意思] 眼睛盯着看的壶永远不会开。

[解释] 事情在进行中,不到时候就不会有结果,要水到渠成才行。心急锅不开。你着急?着急也没用!用眼睛盯着它看也无济于事,事情不会因为你着急就会有较快的进展。

4. A word to the wise.

[字面意思] 送给智者的一句话。

[解释] 给明智而愿意接受别人意见或建议的人提出忠告。我知道你能听进去话,所以我才跟你这么说。我说的是正确的,对你有好处,而且我知道你也会听取我的意见。

5. All is well that ends well.

[字面意思] 结尾好就意味着一切都好。

[解释] 结局好,一切都好。出自莎士比亚剧本名。在开始或中间环节出现的一些小的差错或麻烦无关紧要,没什么大不了的,只要最终的结局令人满意,那就是好的。

6. Bad news travels fast.

[字面意思] 坏消息传得快。

[解释] 好事不出门,坏事传千里。

8. Beggars can't be choosers.

[字面意思] 乞丐不可能有选择。

[解释] 最好不要去冒险。即使不冒险你得多费些功夫,多做些枯燥无味的工作,这都值得。总比为了省事而冒险强。变体:Better to be safe than sorry.

[解释] 这句话适合讲给那些把什么事都看得容易的人。尤其是对那种认为挣钱容易,不把钱当钱,对任何事情都不担心的人最适合。应该提醒这种人"钱不是长在树上的"。钱不是像树上的果实一样,今年吃光了明年还会自动长出来。有些人自己不挣钱,不知道挣钱的艰辛。

11. Every little helps.

[字面意思] 每一小部分都有帮助。

[解释] 点点滴滴,有其助益。一颗颗粮食堆成山,一块块铜板成千万。偏远地区的孩子没学上,我们有义务帮助他们。希望大家多支持,捐钱、捐书、捐铅笔,什么都行。多捐多感谢、少捐也不嫌,Every little helps.

12. Good wine needs no bush.

[字面意思] 好酒不需要做广告。

15. In for a penny, in for a pound!

[字面意思] 赌一便士是赌,赌一英镑也是赌。

[解释] 类似"一不做、二不休"的说法。这是当你要准备参与某个项目,准备投入你的财力,时间或精力的时候可能说的一句话。你买股票时,拿不定主意,是买进100股,还是再多买一点。我劝你:"我看能赚大钱,干脆多买点儿,In for a penny, in for a pound!

[字面意思] 我的话对他/她的话。

[解释] 我跟他发生争执,我俩各执一词,没有人可以证明谁对谁不对,公说公有理,婆说婆有理。你该相信谁的话,真是个难题。There were no witnesses to the accident, so it's my word against hers. 这是说不清的事情。

21. It's not my pigeon.

[字面意思] 不是我的鸽子。

[解释] 不关我的事。不是我的责任。跟我没关系。那家公司倒闭了?幸好我没买它的股票,倒就倒了吧,It's not my pigeon.

27. Love is blind.

[字面意思] 爱情是盲目的。

[解释] 情人眼里出西施。究竟他为什么爱上了她?我是不理解,但谁也说不清。爱情就是这样,正像人们常说的一样,Love is blind. 典出罗马神话,爱神丘比特Cupid用布蒙着眼睛,生有双翅,持弓箭,"爱情之箭"会盲目地射出。

28. Love me, love my dog.

[字面意思] 如果爱我,也应该爱我的狗。

33. Money isn't everything.

[字面意思] 钱不是一切。

34. My ears are burning.

[字面意思] 我的耳朵在发烧。

[解释] 在西方也有人相信,如果你的耳朵发热,那可能是有人在其它地方议论你。有的中国人还有左耳烧和右耳烧的区别(好话和坏话的区别)。这是感觉到别人在说起你的时候说的一句话。
