    Các anh chị em cho mình hỏi câu này với ạ. "A mind is a valuable thing to waste" sách dịch là "Bộ não là 1 thứ quí giá không nên lãng phí", mình thấy hơi khó hiểu nên mình có tra google thì có 1 câu khác "A mind is a terrible thing to waste" thì lại dịch thành "sẽ thật khủng khiếp nếu lãng phí trí tuệ". Với 2 câu này, chỉ thay từ valuable với terrible thì to waste đã hiểu sang hướng khác, hay sách dịch sai k ạ?
