'Small time' = If you refer to workers or businesses as small-time, you think they are not very important because their work is limited in extent or not very successful, nếu bạn nhắc đến người lao động hay doanh nghiệp/công việc là small-time (thời khắc nhỏ), có nghĩa là bạn ý nói họ không quan trọng vì kết quả công việc của họ còn hạn chế hoặc không mấy thành công.

Ví dụ
Thousands of people have been killed in Duterte's campaign, mainly drug users and small-time peddlers.

Unfortunately, the two brothers don’t have much in the way of skill sets or job prospects other than to pull off small-time robberies or deals that can get them some money.

The senator maintained he still supports the war on drugs but it takes more than targeting small time pushers to solve the problem. He also stressed the need to uphold human rights in doing so.

Salvator Rosa's 1658 painting Allegory of Fortune shows Fortuna, the Goddess of luck, as an allegory of Fortune

"Fortune favours the bold", "Fortune favours the brave", "Fortune helps the brave", and "Fortune favours the strong" are common translations of a Latin proverb (audentes Fortuna iuva). The slogan has been used historically in the military in the Anglo-Saxon world, and it is used up to the present in the US Army and on the coats of arms of individual families and clans.
