Resolution New You #24 - Learn to speak a new language!

English is a funny language. How else can we explain why we park our car on the driveway and drive our car on the parkway?  Or, skating on thin ice can get you into hot water.  And how can a fat chance and a slim chance mean the same thing?  If that doesn't convince you to learn a new language to be a better new you, then take this quote by Martin H. Fischer, "Any man who does not make himself proficient in at least two languages other than his own is a fool. " So below is one phrase that should be universally understood.  It is written in a few of the most popular languages spoken throughout the world. Would you know what to do if someone said it to you?
