'Time has not been kind to' = thời gian không nhân hậu đối với... -> nghĩa là, theo thời gian, vẻ đẹp/công việc/dự án v.v... trở nên xấu đi/tồi tệ hơn/thất bại.

Ví dụ
Time has not been kind to many of the beliefs held by Michael Douglas's character in the 1987 film Wall Street.

Time has not been kind to Love Actually. Since its 2003 release, popular opinion around it has morphed from “Aw, what a charming compilation of Christmas-centric love stories!” to “What the hell, most of these couplings are the result of borderline stalking and/or deeply problematic employee-employer relationships.”

Deryck Whibley has fought his demons and won, but time has not been kind to the band who lurch from one cover to the next, Master Of Puppets onto an ill-advised rendition of Queen and various guitar solos, it all highlights their lack of songs besides the one or two hits everyone was waiting for at the end of Fat Lip and In Too Deep.

"Time heals all wounds" nghĩa là gì?

'Time heals all wounds' nghĩa là thời gian sẽ chữa lành mọi vết thương.

Ví dụ
It gets emotional for us at times because they say time heals all wounds but I feel that we still need more time.

They say time heals all wounds and it appears it might only be a short while before Paul Pierce and Ray Allen are friends again.

Many of us have been left with a shattered heart after a painful breakup with an ex. Family and friends will utter the cliche, "time heals all wounds", but days, weeks, months, and years later, we're still not over our ex — we either long for them or we're still angry at them. Time isn't what helps mend a broken heart; it's what we do in that space that helps us move on from a long-term relationship.
