    there is safety in numbers 人多勢眾、人多壯膽

    Context:
    Reluctant Attendance
    …(前文略)
    前文請參閱第953
    不情願的會議
    Meeting angry parents was no picnic and all of the other councilors had claimed to be otherwise engaged when Mr. James raised the subject. This was a great pity as there was always safety in numbers at such meetings.

    要和這些憤怒的家長開會是件艱難的任務,而且如果Mr. James提起這個議題的話,一堆議員應該會藉故不出席。其實像這類型的會議,人多可以壯膽,如果議員們不參加,真的會讓Mr. James相當頭痛。

    • 片語: there is safety in numbers 人多勢眾、人多壯膽
    • 定義:a saying used to indicate that it is less risky for someone to do or say something if there are several other people doing so as well
    • 例句:
    • It would be better if a group of us went to ask the boss for more money, rather than sending one representative; there’s safety in numbers.

    如果我們一整群過去找老闆問加薪的事情,絕對比只派一個代表過去保險;畢竟人多勢眾嘛。

    • Rob has been advised to take other climbers with him when he tries to reach the summit; there’s safety in numbers.

    大家都建議Rob攻頂的時候再多找一些登山客一起走;畢竟人多勢眾、人多壯膽嘛。
