Wow! I checked and that is the longest title in my whole blog!
Well in today’s English language fascination I am going to introduce a random sentence that meant alot to me.
If I remembered it correctly, this words came from my former physics teacher back in the Singapore days.
it goes something like this:
“You won’t treasure a thing,
to me these words are very symbolic and full of meaning..
This is why I like it: It cleverly uses the word “treasure” and “lost” and brilliantly use its off topic relations and makes it meaningful in such a short but sweet sentence.
The fact is, I’ve checked, of all the languages I know so far.. there is no other language than the English language, that describes it best and deep like:
You won’t treasure a thing, until its lost..
If its not lost, it would not be a “treasure” right? duh…
I better stop this blog, before you become my “treasure”, yes you my readers..
thanks for reading!
PS: Thanks Mr Chan (my physics and form teacher when I was in 3A Bowen)
