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
