"Consult my pillow" nghĩa là gì?

'Consult one's pillow' nghĩa là nằm vắt tay lên trán mà suy nghĩ.

Ví dụ
He frequently consulting his pillow how to behave himself on such important occasions.

Speaking in an interview with X-fm 95.1, Richard Quashigah said it was time Hon Teye Nyaunu “consulted his pillow and reflected on his actions and inactions, because to declare that you would work to ensure the downfall of the party sounds very strange”.

As this promise did not cause the young lady to "jump out her skin" or saddle, it is highly probable that she did not perceive any great harm in it; nor did it occur to her then, or when consulting her pillow at night, that she violated female propriety, by answering, simply, and somewhat emphatically, "I hope you will."

Notwithstanding Miss Sally was not so much enamoured as her spark, yet, when she consulted her pillow on the subject, it raised some emotions in her mind, which she had never experienced before; and, being much perplexed with doubts and fears, she was once going to communicate her thoughts to her fellow prentice who lay with her; but thinking that might be of dangerous consequence to the young gentleman, as probably the affair might, by that means, reach his father’s ears, she then, upon mature consideration, chose not to entrust, even her bosom friend, with the secret.

Điều quan trọng nhất

For unflagging interest and enjoyment, a household of children, if things go reasonably well, certainly all other forms of success and achievement lose their importance by comparison.
~ Theodore Roosevelt

Về sự thích thú và thú vị không ngừng, một gia đình đầy trẻ em, nếu mọi thứ diễn ra tốt đẹp, chắc chắn tất cả các thành công và thành tích khác đều không quan trọng bằng.
