Forgive and Forget

September 19, 2017

こんにちは〜
仙台のプライベート英会話講師&翻訳者デイブです。

今日の話題は: Proverbs

今日久しぶりにあることわざについて話したいです。

「Two wrongs don't make a right.」

皆さんは聞いたことがありますか? このことわざには「make」は「equal」という意味になっています。そして「wrong」は「悪いこと」で「right」は「正しいこと」という風にかんがえて下さい。

「wrong」+「wrong」≠ 「right」

それで意味は「悪いことをされても打ち返すのは正しくない」ということです。

例文:

1. You shouldn't hit your classmates even if they hit you. Two wrongs don't make a right.

2. It's not OK to cheat on your spouse even if they cheat on you. Two wrongs don't make a right.

3. It's easy to say "two wrongs don't make a right" but forgiving other people is much more difficult than retaliating.

That's it!
