小婦人裡的一小段如下，最後一段Jo說的＂any more than...＂那一整句的結構是？？ any more than表達什麼意思呢？謝謝！"I see. It's nice to have accomplishments and be elegant, but not to show off \
or get perked up," said Amy thoughtfully."These things are always seen and felt in a person's manner and conversations,\
if modestly used, but it is not necessary to display them," said Mrs. March."Any more than it's proper to wear all your bonnets and gowns and ribbons at o\
nce, that folks may know you've got them," added Jo.

It is not any more advisable to save all you earn than it is wise to spend it all. =
It is not advisable to save all you earn any more than it is wise to spend it all. (本題的寫法)
It is not advisable to to save all you earn, just as it is not wise to spend it all. =
Saving all you ear is not advisable, just as spending it all is not wise. =
Saving all you earn is as bad as spending it all.講話時因為有前文, 所以有時候會借用前一個人的內容來接續, 可是又因重複而省略ㄧ部分, 故容易造成讀者在解讀上的困難, 尤其是非母語者.
... , but it is not necessary to display them [any more than it is proper to wear all your bonnets and gowns and ribbons at once that folks may know you've got them.]
[to wear all your bonnets and gowns and ribbons at once that folks may know you've got them]
(that前面的逗號是為了語氣停頓, 才不會讓句子太長, 不用也可以. [that]=[so that])
不需要把這些氣質表露出來, 就像不需要把這些服飾同時穿戴起來, 好讓人們知道你擁有它們, 是一樣的道理.另外:
conceit/pride是抽象概念, 代名詞宜用it, 而非them.
