Saying of the Day
English convey an attitude of stoicism. You deduce what people are feeling from what they’re not saying. Because English people don’t say what they feel. In American writing, they say ‘You don’t understand me, Dad." Whereas in English writing they say ‘Hello Dad, how many lumps of sugar do you take in your tea?’
