    Smile Stop???

    Dear teacher
    I have a question and I'd like to ask you with 2 sentences.
    1.Stop working.
    2.Stop to work.
    What is the difference between these sentences ?
    As for me they seem to have same meaning but I'm not sure at all.
    Thank you very much.
    Best regards.

    .
    1-- Stop working = take a rest from working.
    2-- Stop to work = take a rest from whatever you are doing, and start working.
