  • Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Proverbs 167. The proverb today is cross that bridge when

  • one comes to it. So we often hear somebody say well we will cross that

  • bridge when we come to it or he'll cross that bridge when he comes to it. So you

  • could use different people with it. But it's basically cross that bridge when

  • you come to it. All right. Let's take a look at the note here. The note. If

  • someone says that he or she will cross that bridge when he or she comes to it,

  • or gets to it. Sometimes they might change the word 'come' to 'get' too. They mean

  • that they will deal with the problem when it is nearer in time and more

  • suitable to do so. The idea behind it is that it is too soon to worry about it.

  • You know, to worry about it right now. It could suggest one is simply too busy

  • now. You know to handle this. They already have their hands full or perhaps the

  • situation may change before it is necessary to deal with it. So you might

  • be worrying about it too soon. The situation may get better or it may get

  • worse, but it may become more clear how to

  • approach it later. When you're getting closer to it, you may have a better idea

  • of what you can and cannot do or how you could get around it. If one is really

  • lucky the problem may go away or straighten out on its own. Yeah sometimes

  • you know, if it's if it's in the distance you never know. You might get lucky. You

  • may not have to deal with it at all. The origin is unclear but you know but many

  • people think or many people may think it may allude to actually crossing bridges

  • that were less secure in former times. In the past and that there was no point or

  • no reason or no need to worry until the time of the actual crossing. So you know,

  • don't worry about it all the way on the trip. If it's still

  • hundreds of miles away before you get to that bridge or 50 miles away or a day

  • away. It's no points worry now. Worry when you get there. All right. And we have a couple

  • of examples how we use this today. Let's not worry about it now, we will cross

  • that bridge when we come to it. You know, this is just the way we hear it used. Or

  • number two. This is an a/b part. A will say how will we ever afford to send our

  • daughter to a good college ? And B says don't worry that. It is still 10 years away.

  • We will cross that bridge when we come to it. Okay. Anyway, I hope you got it. i

  • hope it is clear. I hope it was informative. Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
