    Please explain to me!

    Mr Teacher, please i want you to explain to me the meaning of the expression "If a man must save his life, he must lose it" I need to know about it, all i know is that it is a paradoxical statement. Thanks for your anticipated reply.

    Re: Please explain to me!

    It's a religious/philosophical statement, and as this is an English forum, we will not discuss that here. Perhaps you can find a minister or priest who would talk to you about it.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
