Variety is the spice of life 變化是生活的調味料
Said to emphasize that doing many different things, or often changing what you do, makes life interesting; you should try many different kinds of experiences, because trying different things keeps life interesting.
The proverb tells that variety of things and ideas in the life of man brings him fun and joy as the spices of life like joy and fun make him enthusiastic and enjoyable like different flavors of spices add to the taste of food and make the food palatable. Each spice is different in flavors and they add to the taste of food. To increase the taste of food and for better intake of food, we add spices of different flavors while preparing the food we want. The tasteless or less tasted food is neglected to be taken in. Different flavors are needed for the different dishes. Otherwise the same flavor looses its taste after sometime because the variety of spices makes the food eatable.
Similarly variety is needed in every sphere of life. The same routine life of the family like going to job coming back home and doing household work makes life monotonous and we lose our creativity in life. There should be some changes in the lifestyle of people. When we engage in the monotonous work continuously for several hours and days, we feel very tired. We should have some break to carry on the life afresh. Engaging ourselves in other than our routine work entertains the mind and provides opportunities to refresh us. Change always brings happiness and happiness always makes the people lively. We may go to the hill stations and other worth seeing places of our interest which we can afford. Such changes in life make the life charming and happy and the variety fills our hearts with joy and pleasure.
“I usually spend my summer vacation camping, but I think I should try something different this year. Variety is the spice of life.”
