The eye is bigger than the belly.
英文释义:When you want to learn lots of things at one time, you usually fail in all of them.
例句:The fact that lots of parents make their children to take part in sums of extracurricula courses always leads to the kids' failures in all of them. Because they ignore the truth that the eye is bigger than the belly.
网上有译成“贪多嚼不烂”,但感觉不太到位。想听听大家的意见。
