英文谚语:
Out of sight, out of mind.

在网上查,有两种译本:

"out of sight, out of mind"
There are some things which we think about only as long as we can see them in front of us; when we can no longer see them (out of sight) we forget about them (out of mind). Example: "As soon as I leave the room, he just forgets what I told him to do!" Answer: "Out of sight, out of mind." Something which is easily fogotten when you can no longer see it is "out of sight, out of mind." Example: "I meant to read that book, but as soon as I put it down, I forgot about it." Answer: "Out of sight, out of mind." Some things we need to see (sight) in order to remember (mind); they are "out of sight, out of mind."

She promised to write when she moved to another state,but she hasn't.I suppose it's a case of out of sight,out of mind.
她答应过到另一个州后会写信来的,可是她并没有写。我想这说明眼不见,心不想,不见到的人会很快被人忘了的。
