君子之交淡如水

老帖有,可以参考一下
http://bbs.chinadaily.com.cn/forumpost.shtml?toppid=62546

BTW
君子之交淡如水,小人之交甘如醴。君子淡以亲,小人甘以绝。
The friendship between men of virtue is light like water, yet affectionate; the friendship between men without virtue is sweet like wine, yet easily broken.


2.她是一个内秀的人
she is pretty on the inside.
这个是根据一张CD名Pretty On The Inside来的
OR:
a rough diamond
rough diamond:粗糙的,未经加工的钻石, 用来比喻"内秀的人",it's a slang.
这个在新概念第三册有.
diamond in the rough外粗内秀的人(slang)

so:
she is a diamond in the rough她是个内秀的人
或者
she is a rough diamond.

To godsunyu:

"Inside" could possibly be anatomically associated. I hope you know what I mean.

As for that "plain as water" translation, it's my own version done a long time ago.

To echommm:

If you feel that women are being excluded once "gentlemen" is mentioned, how about:

”True friendship is as plain as water.“ ?

As for language learning,whether one word or phrase is originated or cited really doesn't matter,the only important thing for us is how to use the right word or phrase in a specific context.Do u agree with me?
