…look on the bright side… μην απελπίζεσαι…


Question by ‘spyr2000’: ‘Είναι λάθος να λέμε ‘ look at the good side’;

My reply to ‘spyr2000’: Ναι, είναι. Και το κάνουμε πολύ συχνά δηλαδή απλά μεταφράζουμε λέξη προς λέξη.

Το σωστό είναι look on the bright side.

Examples:

  • Mary has never given up trying for the best. She always looks on the bright side (of things).
  • My mum is very optimistic. She looks on the bright side and never despairs (απελπίζεται).
  • Don’t worry. I’m sure you’ll find someone else…look on the bright side…be positive!
