美國人常挂在嘴邊的200句:體現其文化及價值觀

1-----You can't argue with success

Though you may tell someone they are doing something in a wrong way, you have to stop criticizing them if their method works.

2-----Nothing succeeds like success

Like money in a savings account, success seems to compound itself. A person who has a small success expects it to be followed by a bigger one.

3-----The end justifies the means

It does not matter how you succeed. Any method is all right if it works for you. This proverb is not always accepted. Often one hears the opposite, "the end doesn't justifies the means."

4-----If you can't beat them, join them

If you cannot compete successfully with a person or a group, stop competing and go join them. Then you can share in their success.

5-----Always a day late and a dollar short

A criticism of a person who never succeeds. The failures may not be drastic but the pattern of small failures is annoying to others, especially in two areas that Americans value as highly as time and money.

6-----One thing at a time

Concentration leads to success. The person who tires to do too many things at once may fail at all of them.

7-----We'll cross that bridge when we come to it

We will not discuss or worry about a future problem. If and when the problem becomes urgent, we will deal with it.

8-----Don't put the cart before the horse

Do things in a sensible order. For example, do something to impress your boss before you ask for a raise in pay. Don't ask for the raise first.

9-----All's fair in love and war

Do not trust a rival or an enemy at all. His or her desire to succeed will overrule everything else. Such a people may lie, cheat, attack or do many other things far more terrible than he or she would normally do.

10-----When in Rome do as the romans do

Flexibility leads to success in unfamiliar circumstances. People may changes their normal way of doing things in order to fit in better with those they are visiting.

11------Easy does it

Some things require gentleness for success. One should not push too hard. Force may cause damage

12-----The bigger they are, the harder they fall

Do not be discouraged by the size of your problem or the fame of your competitor. (the saying is traced to a boxer preparing to fight an opponent much larger than he was.)

13-----All is well that ends well

If we can come to a successful conclusion, let us forget about the pain and mistakes along the way.

14-----Go for it

Go ahead and try to achieve your goal. Don't worry about failing. Similar to this proverb--God provides food to every bird, but he won't cast to its nest, you got to earn it.

15-----Every little bit helps

If someone apologizes for giving only a small gift, the recipient may encourage the giver by quoting this proverb. This is especially true if there is a huge job to do or a huge amount of money to be raised from many people.

16-----Look before you leap

Don't jump into a situation carelessly. You may land in difficulty.

17-----All that glitters is not gold

Do not be fooled by worthless things that seem valuable or look attractive.

"Fool's gold "is the popular name for a kind of stone that glitters like gold but contains no gold at all.
