fish in the sea


fish in the sea
Рыба в море. Утешение, которое англичане предлагают, когда любовное увлечение проходит: Never mind, there are [lots] more fish in the sea. Ничего, ещё много рыбы в море (т. е. вокруг много хороших людей, ты ещё их повстречаешь на своём пути). Тот же смысл имеет фраза: he/she's not the only pebble on the beach он/она не единственный камешек на берегу. Доктор в конце приёма может сказать пациенту: I'm afraid I have a long waiting list this morning. You're not the only pebble on the beach. — К сожалению, у меня сегодня много больных, вы не единственный.
