  • Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Proverbs 122. The proverb today is nothing

  • ventured nothing gained. Now remember to venture, anytime we venture, it always

  • means that you're doing something that might be exciting but that obviously

  • there is some risk involved. All right. So let's continue here.

  • The proverb basically means if you don't take risks in your life , you won't be

  • able to attain or to get or to accomplish anything of importance or

  • deep meaning. So nothing ventured , nothing gained. And we always do it sometimes to

  • kind of encourage somebody to you know, just kind of do it. Go for it. So let's

  • continue here. This is another proverb that is first cited, cited means the

  • first time they really found it from John Haywoods 1546 book. So remember

  • this is a really, really old proverb. It goes way back you know more than 500 years

  • ago or more. And remember his book was just a book of his collection of proverbs

  • that he had at that time. So and this was the name of it you know a dialogue

  • containing the number in effect of all proverbs. I don't know the pronunciation

  • might be it might have been slightly different back then

  • because you, you can probably see that the spelling was different.

  • They definitely spelled containing a different way today we spell it CONTAINING

  • and number of course is spelled with a U in effect of all the

  • Proverbs and we wouldn't have an ES on proverbs today. But again that's one of

  • these .... that's where this proverb came from. From that book a long long time ago.

  • Or it's the first one that's cited. Like I said he probably had ...he, he wrote them

  • down he collected them and put them all in this book. But anyway. Let's get into

  • some of the examples. So you can understand it better. So example number

  • one. Even though I probably don't have a snowball's chance in hell. Yeah, remember

  • this is another idiom. I don't think I covered this one yet but if we say that

  • somebody has a doesn't have a snowball's chance in hell, it

  • basically means you probably have no chance at all. Remember the idea is if

  • you really had a snowball and it was in hell you know, we all imagined hell is

  • supposed to be a place where there's a lot of fire and it would be very hot so

  • a snowball would not last very long in hell. It would melt. So if we say that

  • somebody says that they don't have a snowball's chance in hell, basically it

  • means they have no chance at all. So getting back to the first example. Even

  • though, I probably don't have a snowball's chance in hell , I'm going to

  • try out for that part in this movie. What do I have to lose ? You know, so I don't

  • get the part. At least I'm going to try out. Nothing ventured nothing gained.This is

  • often the way we might say it. Thinking like well, I'm just going to try for it

  • anyway. Maybe I'll get lucky. Maybe I'll get it. But if not, well at least I tried.

  • it's kind of like that idea. When anytime somebody says nothing ventured nothing

  • gained. So if you don't even try, you won't get it. That's basically the idea.

  • So number two here. If you really like her, just ask her out. You know,

  • ask her out on a date. Of course, you know, you could hear somebody say this. Oh, the

  • worst that could happen is that she says "no. " All right. So if you're brave enough

  • or you know, if you , if you , if you can just take that. You know , then go for it.

  • Sometimes you just have to go for it. Go for it , you know, remember , just do

  • it. Just go for it. Nothing ventured nothing gained. You

  • never know, you might get lucky. Maybe she'll say "yes. " Who knows ? Okay. But anyway

  • this is what we mean. So I hope you got it. I hope it's clear. Thank you for your

  • time. Bye-bye.
