'Horse laugh' (cười như ngựa hí) -> nghĩa là tiếng cười hô hố (a coarse, mocking, or raucous laugh; guffaw).

Ví dụ
The point is that in the minds of many voters, a politician's “guarantee” these days is worth little more than a horse laugh.

George’s generation of Vermonters would have given Bernie the horse laugh he deserves, and stashed him in the attic where he belongs, with a copy of “Socialism for Dummies” and a box of toys.

It has been a while since Murphy has played the smart-mouthed detective with the horse laugh and the unusual approach to law enforcement, but depending on the approach of what is slated to be the final film in the franchise, it might be enjoyable.

Men regard it as their right to return evil for evil—and, if they cannot, feel they have lost their liberty.
~ Aristotle

Con người coi việc lấy oán báo oán là quyền của họ, và nếu không thể làm vậy, họ cảm thấy như mất tự do.

The philosopher is like a mountaineer who has with difficulty climbed a mountain for the sake of the sunrise, and arriving at the top finds only fog; whereupon he wanders down again.
~ W. Somerset Maugham

Một triết gia cũng giống như một nhà leo núi, vất vả leo núi để ngắm mặt trời mọc, nhưng lên tới đỉnh chỉ thấy mịt mù sương; đành lại lang thang quay về.
