¿Qué quiere decir "Don't try to cover the sun with?"
don t try to cover the sun with
Now, now, Marianne - I'm disappointed. You must have gotten burned up with your last feat of guessing with the "motor" thread! :-D
The expression is: "Don't try to cover the sun with your finger" - "No intentes tapar el sol con un dedo".
This means that you can pretend that something is not there, as when you put your thumb or finger in front of your eyes so that you cover the sun (or the moon for that matter) and don't see it anymore. But that doesn't meant the sun has gone away or that anything has really changed.
So don't try to ignore the facts and gloss things over - deal with the real issue!
No trates de cubrir el sol con un dedo. El sol no desaparece realmente - y los problemas tampoco se van si tratamos de ignorarlos o hacemos como que no están.
"No quieras tapar el sol con un dedo". Meaning or trying to say that you are trying to cover something that is impossible to cover up. For example, a big mistake and then you are trying to fix it with something that is very noticeable.
