Please help me explain the meanings of following sentences:
- Being at the shoulder of people who are making the decisions is a vastly different story than being in a position to read magazine.
- I’m not going to paint you in the best light.
Thank you very much!
Thank you very much, Sir!
I have another question as follows:
Does ‘All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy’ has the same meaning with ‘All work and much play’?
That should be pretty obvious, Galilom - ‘no’ means ‘no’ and ‘much’ means ‘a lot of’. They are quite opposite in meaning. In any case, it is a fixed saying.
So 2 above sentences means ‘We should work and rest properly’???
No. I have already said that your idea for changing the sentence is not the same meaning at all.
‘All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy’ does mean, however, that without time off from work, a person becomes both bored and boring. A balance should be reached.
