能解释下什么意思吗? 我感觉前句和后句似乎没有关系。

Easier said than done.
说得容易,做得难。


Easier said than done 是针对某件事情而言的,意谓那件事情说来容易,做起来难。例如:The doctor says I should stop smoking, but that's easier said than done.

而“说到比做到简单”,是一句一般性的话,“说到”是“作出许诺”的意思。

所以,两个“说”字并不相同,不应混为一谈。

试译:Promises are more easily made than kept, but when I make one, I intend to keep it.
