覆水难收 It's no use crying over spilt milk

今日短语

It's no use crying over spilt milk 覆水难收

Learning English: Todays Phrase - its no use crying over spilt milk

今日短语

汉语里说“泼出去的水”指事情已经成定局,无法改变。而英语中人们用 “牛奶 milk”代替“水”以描述类似的状况。成语 it's no use crying over spilt milk “奶已打翻,哭也无益”相当于汉语成语“覆水难收”,隐含的意思是事已至此,不可挽回,因此后悔也没有用,常被用来规劝他人向前看。

人们有时也会将这个表达变成 there is no use crying over spilt milk 或 don't cry over spilt milk 等形式来表达同样的含义。

例句

现在后悔已经于事无补!当初你离开了她,而如今她已经和别人在一起了,对此你什么也改变不了。
