Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Quotes 178.
Today we have another quote by
Shakespeare and it's a famous old saying,
'much ado about nothing. ' All right.
Let's take a look at the note here. This
quote is the title of a famous play
by Shakespeare between 1598 and 1599.
It has now become a common phrase to mean
that someone is making a big deal and
and a lot of noise and complaints about something
most people would consider insignificant,
not that important. So if we hear
that we hear everybody's making a big noise about it,
but like well, what is this ? Who cares ?
We say oh much ado about nothing. All right.
So let's continue here . Here, ado,
it means in this situation means a lot of fuss
or commotion. So ado means fuss
or commotion. People yelling, screaming
about something. But again about nothing.
Nothing of major importance. So let's
look at example number one. There are
many articles in the media that seem
to go out of their way to make much ado about nothing.
Often to get different groups of people
engaged in controversy. All right.
I know maybe they like to sensationalize things.
Maybe they like to create stories.
Maybe they like to create controversy.
Just because it makes it seem more exciting
or maybe they have other reasons as well.
Let's look at number two.
Seriously, he is making this big a deal
over something that costs
less than one u.s. dollar.
Talk about much ado about nothing.
Yes. So we all used to talk about to
emphasize something like, you know, talk
about cheap, talk about stupid, meaning
that this is a perfect example of this situation.
So much ado about nothing. Too much
screaming, complaining and fuss about
something that's not really that
big a deal. You know, life is, why you know,
life is too important.
We shouldn't be fussing over about this small stuff.
Okay. Anyway, I hope you got it.
I hope it's clear. Thank you for your time. Bye bye
