解 釋 Explanation

語本《孔子家語.卷九.七十二弟子解》:「然少成則若性也,習慣若自然也。」一旦養成習慣,便像天然生成一般。《鏡花緣.第三二回》:「俗語說的習慣成自然,我們看他雖覺異樣,無如他們自古如此。」

英文解釋  In modern parlance, we can get used to anything. The longer we have to put up with it, however irksome or unpleasant it may be, the more able are we to adapt ourselves to it. It becomes part of our life and we accept it as such.
英文造句 If we move into a house near a factory that keeps going twenty four hours a day, at first the noise of the machinery keeps us awake at night, but custom reconciles us to everything.
