Man is good


I know in my heart that man is good, that what is right will always eventually triumph, and there is a reason to each and every life.

- Ronald Reagan

拉登的死令我想起前美國總統列根以上的一句話。留意單數形式,前面沒有 article (a, an, the) 的 "man" 是表示「人類」,不是「男人」。

「動物是人類的好朋友」的英文是:

Animals are man's friends. (correct)
Animals are men's friends. (wrong!)

"Triumph" 可作名詞或動詞;意思是:成功獲勝
