stay: ✓ stay ✗ rest

By | March 27, 2017
As long as poverty, injustice and gross inequality persist in our world, none of us can truly rest.
Fino a quando la povertà, l’ingiustizia e la profonda disuguaglianza esisteranno nel mondo, nessuno di noi potrà davvero riposare.
- Nelson Mandela
✓ I only stayed at the party until eleven.
✗ I only *rested* at the party until eleven.
Sono rimasto alla festa solo fino alle undici.
If we stay in a place, we don’t leave it. Some examples:
Stay where you are!
*Rest* where you are!
Resti dove sei!
✓ How long are you staying?
✗ How long are you *resting*?
Quanto ti fermi?
If we rest, we don’t do anything physically or mentally active. Some examples:
✓ My doctor told me to rest for two weeks.
Il mio medico mi ha detto di riposarmi per due settimane.
✓ I’m not sleeping, I’m just resting my eyes!
Non sto dormendo, sto solo facendo riposare gli occhi!
