Đối diện khổ đau

Pain and suffering are always inevitable for a large intelligence and a deep heart. The really great men must, I think, have great sadness on earth.
~ Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Đau buồn và thống khổ luôn là điều không thể tránh khỏi đối với những ai có một trí tuệ lớn và một trái tim sâu sắc. Tôi cho rằng, những con người vĩ đại hẳn phải buồn bã nhất thế gian.

"All systems are go" nghĩa là gì?

'All systems (are) go' nghĩa là mọi thứ/hệ thống đã sẵn sàng, và một nhiệm vụ gì đó có thể được tiến hành theo kế hoạch.

Ví dụ
We want to encourage them and let them know all systems are go. The papers are ready and all our staff throughout the regions are ready… and we expect the nation’s children to do very well.

All systems are go for the planned March 2 launch of the Crew Dragon capsule on its first test flight to the International Space Station (ISS), an uncrewed mission known as Demo-1, NASA and SpaceX officials announced today (Feb. 22).

I checked and Facebook seems to be working fine for me, too–although it has not tweeted an update yet about whether all systems are go, and the website Down Detector says there are still hundreds of people reporting outages.

Rosenblum said she hasn’t heard of opposition from constituents or the lobby. “All systems are go,” she said. The bill has been referred to Ways and Means, which will nail down how much the program will cost. Rosenblum said rough estimates put the cost of the new office at $1 million, but she doesn’t know how solid that number is.

"Like a dog with two tails" nghĩa là gì?

'Like a dog with two tails' = như con chó có 2 cái đuôi -> nghĩa là rất vui và hào hứng.

Ví dụ
“I really think they enhance (nâng cao/trau dồi) the set. We were like a dog with two tails at the beginning of this band, we didn’t know where to wag (vẫy) them, we were just wagging tails constantly! a dog with two tails, that’s what Skindred’s first three albums were. Then we’ve got the stuff where we were like, ‘Oh we’ve matured (trưởng thành) so much on this record.’ Then we’ve got the stuff where we’re like, ‘We’re still little kids!’ It just all helps to make the set more bouncy, more rocky.”

Angela Milner, a Museum palaeontologist (nhà cổ sinh vật học) who hosted Attenborough, says, 'When the animal was named after (được mang tên theo tên ai đó) him he was so thrilled (hân hoan, xúc động), like a dog with two tails.'

If you’re looking for a place to stay in Idaho, this spot will make you feel like a dog with two tails. The Dog Bark Park Inn, located in the city of Cottonwood, is not your typical bed and breakfast. And that’s because it’s in the shape of a giant beagle (chó săn thỏ), lovingly known as Sweet Willy. You can stay in this humongous dog for around $100 a night.
