carry fire in one hand and water in the other:
To be duplicitous, to engage in double-dealing; to be two-faced, to speak with forked tongue. The expression comes from Plautus; it continues “to bear a stone in one hand, a piece of bread in the other.” Thus, the expression indicates that a person is prepared to act in totally contradictory ways to achieve his purposes.

Hi,

Thank you for your interesting information.


下面是我看到有老外,在諺語後加綴:
To say one thing and mean another; to flatter, to deceive; to lull suspicion in order the better to work mischief.

該諺語用小人的樣態(用及傳神的筆法描寫小人在英文裏的固定形象),來針砭其內心。但針砭的話一句都不顯明出來。
[disingenuous]---not open or sincere; slightly dishonest and untruthful

The small man says in his heart: "If I just say to someone that they are wise but think to myself that he is really a fool, then I'd consider that a deliberate act of saying one thing and thinking another."

阳奉阴违。 笑里藏刀。两面手法。
