– Did you just get back from work?
– Yeah. I’m super tired. I’ll have to stay even longer on Thursday.
– It's 10pm! I don’t think working for 12 hours straight is okay. Did you even eat?
– Not yet. I’m pretty hungry.
– I’m ordering dinner immediately!
– I need to go through this now, once I become a general manager I’ll work much less. But – No pain, no gain.
‘No pain, no gain’ is used to say that it is necessary to suffer or to work hard in order to succeed or make progress.有?付出?才有?回报?（不劳则?无获?）
A：This exercise is so difficult!
B: Yeah but it’ll help you lose weight. As they say, no pain, no gain!
A: I’ve been studying for my exams and I never get to go out with my friends.
B: Don’t worry, no pain no gain!
Make gains- make progress
I'm going through (experiencing) a hard time.
I've had to work 13 days straight because of the vacation.
In a row/consecutively
Do something without stopping
? I've been working non-stop since this new project came up.
? It's been raining non-stop since I got here.
No guts no glory.
因此no guts no glory意思差不多就是“不入虎穴，焉得虎子”。类似的说法还有：
No risk , no glory.
No risk no worry.
Without risk there can be no glory!
Nothing ventured nothing gained
used to say that it is worth trying to do something because one might succeed even though success is not certain不入虎穴? 焉得虎子
Venture into/on sth冒险做….
If you don't venture out then you won't discover anything.
? A: I'm thinking of asking my bosses for a raise, but I'm a little bit nervous.
B: Hey, nothing ventured, nothing gained.
? It was a bit of a shot in the dark taking a job in a different country, but nothing ventured, nothing gained!
（1）Paying out would always get repaying.
（2）Efforts will be rewarded.
There is no gain without labour.
Whoever gives me a drop of water, I will repay him the whole sea.
No pains, no gains.
Sooner or later, all perseverance will be rewarded.
Success comes at a price. Failure comes at a higher price.
