  国外许多名言警句有时候读起来也让人纳闷以致于郁闷,因为它们号称是Chinese Proverb(中国谚语),但我作为中国人却不甚了了,想不出来这些Chinese Proverb 到底对应哪些“中国谚语”。

  比如下面这些Chinese Proverb,我可以大致翻译出其意义,但是还没有想出对应的中文原句:

  看着这许多“中国谚语”,怎么就没听说过呢?不是自己学识浅薄,就是老外故弄玄虚,总觉得有deep doubts(深深的疑惑)。说起doubts,也许正好用上另一句世上流传的Chinese Proverbs:

  Deep doubts, deep wisdom; small doubts, little wisdom.
