     Say one thing and do another. (来源:专业英语学习网站 http://www.EnglishCN.com)

     6. 一言既出,驷马难追:有人译成:One word lets slip and four horses will fail to catch it. 或 A statement that once let loose cannot be caught by four galloping horses.

     这两种说法,中文味道嫌重,老外未必理解。不过他们倒有类似的说法:

     A word once let go cannot be recalled.

     或者说:

     You can not take back what you have said. (你说出的话,就不能再收回来。)

     7. 祸从口出,言多必失:有人译为:The mouth is the gate of misfortune and evil.

     老外听了,恐怕不能完全理解。最好说成:

     Careless talk leads to trouble. (不小心说话,会带来麻烦); 或

     The less said the better. (说的愈少愈好)

     甚至也可以说:

     Shut the mouth and open the eyes. (闭嘴少说,张眼多看。) 摘自:旺旺英语
