(5)Bad news travels fast.
正所谓 “好事不出门 , 坏事传千里。” 坏消息、小道消 息总是不径而走,其速之疾,令人咋舌。这也许 与人们的猎奇心理有关,越是有 争议的话题越能得到人们的关注,bad news 自然就会大有市场,令人们奔走相告。
e. g. A: Newman missed the championship by a mere 0.1second.The news just came out at noon, but now the whole city seems to be talking about it!
B: Yeh, bad news travels fast.

(6)There is truth in wine.
东方与西方在“酒后吐真言”这一点 上达到了惊人的共识。人们在 清醒的时候可以将谎言编造得天衣无缝,却在酒 后的魅惑下显出了原形,酒是人类得意的创造,但不少 人却屡屡被酒类驯服,在它的面前丑态百出。这就像 一个人设下陷阱,自己却不幸落入其中,难以自拔。
e.g . A: Listen, Julia! You may not believe it, but it did happen! Yesterday, after several glasses of beer, Peter told me he's been wanting to marry me for quite some time but just didn't have enough courage to say so.
B: Oh, how could it be so dramatic? Congratulations then! There is truth in wine!
