    few and far between 稀少的

    Context:
    Goodbye and Hello
    -A managinig director’s address to the staff.
    (前文略)
    …In Jack’s case, he is moving on to a much larger company which is very much at the cutting edge of the business. They were impressed with Jack’s talents and made him an offer which he could not refuse….
    People of Jack’s skills are few and far between, but we have been very fortunate in securing the services of Jim White, who will, I am sure, prove a worthy successor to Jack.

    迎新送舊
    ~~~一段來自總經理對員工的談話

    …(前文略)以Jack的例子來看,他現在就選擇了一家目前商業界技術尖端的公司;論規模,也比我們公司大的許多。那家公司相當看重Jack的能力,也提供給他誘人的薪資條件。
    如今能擁有像Jack的技能的人已經很稀有了,但是我們很幸運能聘到Jim White,他的能力不遜於Jack,而且我相信,他會是Jack完美的接班人。

    1. 片語: few and far between 稀少的
    2. 定義:rare, not occurring very often
    3. 例句:

    1. Tom claimis to be religious, but his visits to church are few and far between.
    他對外宣稱自己是虔誠的天主教徒,但是實際上他上教堂的次數是少之又少

    2. Before the baby was born, we used to eat out a great deal, but now our meals out are few and far between.
    在我們的嬰兒出生之前,我們經常外出用餐,但是如今我們能外出用餐的機會真的很稀少
