Assunto:  Re: traduzindo l.f. veríssimo ONE MORE TO M ROB!!
 
Mensagem:  Hey m rob, I was wondering if you could help me a bit more... I didn't understand some of your doubts concerning the text and I also wanted a few more suggestions to make the text clearer and natural. Well, here they are: 1) the ideas that never left the paper because of this damned mania for living in (for?) the Fall. - what is wrong here? mania FOR? 2)I sometimes wonder what makes us choose a lukewarm life, or rather, I don't wonder, I contest (challenge?/dispute?). - I used the word "contest" based on the definition bellow: "If you contest a formal statement, a claim, a judge's decision, or a legal case, you say formally that it is wrong or unfair and try to have it changed" (cambridge dictionary)... was it inappropriate to use "contest"? what word would suit better in this case? 3)If virtue were really (in a?) compromise (??), the oceans wouldn't have waves, the days would be cloudy and the rainbow would be in tones of gray - I meant that compromising ( lowering your standards )is not a virtue ( a good moral quality )... would it still sound strange if I wrote " If virtue were really a compromise..."?
