無風不起浪

無風不起浪 tw

ㄨˊ ㄈㄥ ㄅㄨˋ ㄑㄧˇ ㄌㄤˋ
wú fēng bù qǐ làng


lit. there are no waves without wind
there's no smoke without fire
there must be a cause for this
there must be a reason


So when I was writing the post for 漣漪 I learned this 成語. What I found interesting was that the verb used with waves and ripples is 起. We saw it in the 漣漪 post and now we’re seeing it again here. I don’t have much else to say about this one. Keep it in your arsenal, it’s a good one. 🙂
