"A good servant but a bad master" nghĩa là gì?

'A good servant but a bad master' nghĩa là một phương tiện chứ không phải là mục đích; vật để dùng chứ không phải để thờ (You must be careful to use it wisely and under control so that it will not hurt you).

Ví dụ
Money is a good servant but a bad master and people are encouraged never to allow money take the place of God in their lives. It is God that gives power to make wealth and teaches the hands to profit hence we must constantly call to him for his wisdom and power to excel in our finances.

City grandee Charlotte Black has penned a thoughtful piece on reconnecting stakeholders with capitalism. It’s a timely intervention (see today’s leader article) and begins with the John Eatwell quote that “the market is a good servant but a bad master”. Black’s diagnosis about the disconnect between investors, institutions and governance is spot on – and her proposed remedies deserve serious consideration.

Technology can be a good servant, but a bad master. The age of instant everything is upon us, as the internet gives us unprecedented connectivity and freedom of information. Our world is one of instant messaging and instant response, instant gratification and instant solace. No educator can ignore the hold of social media on the younger generation. But such power and promise comes with its own perils. Social media has totally altered the way we communicate. It can bring people together, but also divide a community and magnify its differences. It is a domain where users are not bound by traditional rules, and where it is difficult if not impossible to distinguish reality from myth.

có hai người "chơi" nhau... ;)

The naked (trần truồng, khỏa thân) pair didn't seem to care about the stunned crowd gathered below as they put on an X-rated display in broad daylight (sáng rõ như ban ngày).

In video shot by a neighbour living opposite, one of the onlookers says: “They don’t give a damn.”

The exhibitionists got a round of applause after halting their romp and carrying on out of view inside the apartment.

The unidentified woman involved appeared a little reluctant (miễn cưỡng, bất đắc dĩ, không tự nguyện, không sẵn lòng; trơ trơ, khó bảo) at first, but allowed her male partner to carry on with the public sex act in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

phải tự biết tận hưởng cuộc sống thôi,

đợi xe bus lâu quá nên tranh thủ xxx ngay tại nhà chờ... :)

The pair apparently made no effort to be discreet and instead 'went at it' in front of horrified (khiếp sợ, kinh tởm, khó chịu, choáng váng, gây sốc) passers-by in the main road.

Charlotte Harrison, who lives nearby and filmed the action, said she was simply trying to eat her dinner but was put off her food. The 20-year-old thinks the couple may have missed their bus and had to get another one. She was shocked and was disgusted by what she witnessed from her home.

...Nottinghamshire Police have said they received a report of two people engaging in sexual activity at a bus stop in Victoria Road, Kirkby-in-Ashfield, at around 8pm on Tuesday. "Arrangements are due to be made for the two people to attend a police station for a voluntary interview on suspicion of outraging public decency."

Footage of a woman seemingly performing a sex act on a man in front of shocked commuters (người đi lại thường xuyên bằng xe bus, tàu hỏa) at a busy train station has become a social media sensation (sự làm quần chúng xúc động mạnh, tin giật gân).

The mobile phone clip shows a woman with her back against the wall squatting (ngồi xổm) on the floor as her male partner stands in front of her.

The pair make no attempt (không cố gắng) to hide (che giấu) what they are doing as other passengers (hành khách) walk by.

The man - with his backpack (balo) still over his shoulder (vai) - can be seen rocking backwards and forwards towards the young lady's mouth (mồm).

...Others thought the frisky (ham vui, nghịch ngợm, hay nô đùa) romp  (trò nô đùa, người đàn bà thích nô đùa) was a welcome change from the normal crime stories that emerge from the city's underground. Alexandra Tahiri wrote: "My God, that's no big deal, better than when someone is killed (giết), raped (hiếp) or pushed (đẩy) on the tracks (đường ray)."

Austrian law states that people performing sex in public can be imprisoned (bỏ tù) for one year or fined.

Shocked passengers can be heard laughing in disbelief (hoài nghi, không tin) while recording the couple from the next cabin.

The footage (cảnh phim) was shot as the ferris wheel slowly rotated at 65 metres above the ground in Yaroslavl, Russia.

Police are now investigating (điều tra) after it was shared online.

The operators of the newly opened wheel said they could not be held responsible (chịu trách nhiệm) for the behaviour (hành vi) of passengers (hành khách).

bảo vệ khách sạn Hyatt Regency ở Sydney đâm xe porsche của khách vào gầm xe khác, may mắn thoát nạn...

A hotel valet (người hầu phòng) had a lucky (may mắn) escape (hành động trốn thoát) — but the luxury sports car he was trying to park did not.

Emergency workers cut the driver out from the Porsche as a crowd  (đám đông) watched.

Matthew Talbot, the hotel’s director of sales and marketing, told the Australian Broadcasting Corp. the valet was “embarrassed and a little bit shocked” but was OK.

The larger vehicle was propped up and its wheels were anchored while the vehicles were separated. The black Porsche, its hood and front bumper (cái hãm xung) crunched and dented, was then backed onto a tow truck.
