圣经经文

“Do not revile the king even in your thoughts, or curse the rich in your bedroom, because a bird of the air may carry your words, and a bird on the wing may report what you say.” “你不可咒诅君王,也不可心怀此念,在你卧室也不可咒诅富户,因为空中的鸟必传扬这声音;有翅膀的也必述说这事。” (传导书 10:20)

意思

来源及应用

这个说法来自所罗门王后期所著的传道书,提醒我们要谨慎言语,因为我们所说的话极有可能暗中被人收听,犹如藉著鸽子通风报信。 “A Little Bird Told Me”也是一首歌的名字。这首歌由Harvey O. Brooks所写且于1947年面世,在2008年被Head & Shoulders的一个英国商业广告采用。

例句

Jane: How did you know that I am pregnant?Tina: A little bird told me. Jane:你怎知道我怀孕了?Tina: 一只小鸟告诉我。
