“I would never have amounted to anything were it not for adversity. I was forced to come up the hard way.”

— J.C. Penney, Entrepreneur

「若不是因为挫折,我今天不会有任何成就。我是被迫在因难中进步。」– 詹姆斯‧彭尼 (企业家)

第 一句是与过去事实相反的假设语气。所以结果句要用 「would have + 过去分词」的形式。”amount”在这边当动词用,加 “ed” 变成过去分词 “amounted”。”amounted to anything”意思是说「成就任何事」。条件句裡的 “adversity” 是「困难、挫折」是意思。”I was forced…” 是被动式句型,意思是「我被强迫…」”come up”是口语,意思是「向上进步」,”the hard way” 意思是「以困难的方式」。



大家可以跟帖,把这句打一遍加强记忆。
