我不知道怎么说才好。这么说吧,他也许有很多优点,但是诚实绝不是其中之一。

I don’t know how to put it. Let me put it this way: He may have many merits, but honesty is definitely not one of them.

我原以为只要经济不再过热,通货膨胀就能结束,但结果并非如此

I thought that so long as the economy was no longer overheated, inflation would be brought to an end. But it didn’t work out that way.

4

我真的无法想象一个人生活在孤岛上,没吃没喝,除了海里的鱼和天上的雨水。

I really can’t imagine living on a small island alone without food or water except fish in the sea and rain water from the sky.

5

就中国而言,干净的水可能和石油一样重要,如果不是更加重要的话。我们老忘记我们在人均水的供应上只有世界平均数的四分之一。

As far as China is concerned, clean water can be just as important as oil, if not more so. We keep forgetting we only have a quarter of the world’s average in terms of per capita water supply.

他不知道她躲在哪里,但即便他知道,也不会告诉警察

He didn’t know where she was hiding, but even if he had known, he wouldn’t have told the police.

我对他的撒谎已经忍无可忍了。所以当他又一次撒谎的时候,我就对自己说:“够了!到此为止!”就这样我永远离开了他。

I was sick and tired of his lying. So when he lied again, I said to myself, “Enough is enough” and left him forever.

在他的总统任期内,从没有听说过他拿过任何不属于他的东西,哪怕是朋友给他的并不太贵重的礼物。

During his term as president, he has never been known to take anything that does not belong him, not even an inexpensive gift from a friend.

9

我猜想你昨天没来是因为你有紧急的事物要处理。不过,你给我打个电话也好么。

I guess you didn’t show up yesterday because you had something urgent to do, but you could’ve given me a call.

说真的,今天晚上,我希望我们别再和那伙人玩麻将了。如果你不介意,我就想呆在家里,看看电视。

To tell you the truth, tonight I’d rather we don’t play mahjong with that bunch of people. If you don’t mind, I’d like to stay at home and watch TV.
