Verità è un movimento e di crescita è l'essenza

Post by miebsstt » Thu Dec 05, 2013 7:46 am

Is this the correct translation of: "Truth is movement and growth is the essence"?

I have little knowledge of sentence structure but I am trying to learn, any help is really appreciated.

Thank you. :mrgreen:

ciao e benvenuto

I cannot se much wrong, but would write it as follows:

LA verità è il movimento e l'essenza (DI ESSA) è la crescità

You have to use the definite article LA, and what I have done is to relate essence to truth with the use of di essa (of it). Hope it is helpful.

Hi,

can you explain the saying a little more, or put it in some context? Are you quoting something originally written in English?

I'd particularly like to know whether you mean that growth is the essence of truth or of movement. The entire phrase doesn't make a lot of sense to me but I might just be missing the point.

thanks,
Calum

Ecco un aiutino. Nella frase ci manca solo una virgola:

"Truth is, movement and growth is the essence" (of animal life, for example)

Con l'occasione, buon 2014!
