wonders will never cease

wonders will never cease
«Чудеса никогда не прекратятся». Это восклицание, выражающее удивление по поводу нехарактерного, неожиданного поведения кого-либо. Подобное восклицание не является комплиментом, т. к. подразумевается, что человек, по отношению к которому его употребили, на самом деле не способен на достойное поведение.

He's taken his family to Spain for their first holiday in years. Wonders will never cease! — Он взял свою семью в Испанию на отдых впервые за многие годы. Чудеса случаются!
