I don't understand the meaning of this sentence from St Teresa of Avila: "Yours are the eyes through which Christ's compassion for the world is to look out." If I rearrange the sentence, it will be like this: "Christ's compassion for the world is to look out through your eyes." But it doesn't make sense to me. How can "compassion" look out? Am i wrong in my interpretation?

Hi, I have some questions. I have read some entertainment news, and I am not sure if they are grammatically correct. Katharine McPhee was a runner-up in American Idol in 2006 and has gone on onto a successful pop career, if her $130,000 Aston Martin V8 Vantage roadster is anything to go by. Don't we say," has gone onto something?" Next, I heard people say," that is all to it." Is it a correct usage? Does it mean," that is all it is?" And to in the case is a prepostion? Could you give me some examples? Thanks,

1. Both the girl's parents were present 2. Both parents of the girl were present Altought I find the first form a bit odd, because I don't think it is usual to have a predeterminer (both) related to the noun that follows the genitive noun (parents), I can't think of a reason why the second form should be correct (and it is). Why is the second form accepted? Why an of-construction should be accepted for a noun with personal gender? Has it something to do with the use of predetermination (both)? Thanks.

Could you tell me which bold part you would say? Can you use REFLECT ON like that? Which of the underlined sentences would you say? I've heard JUST LIKE used like this? I t's hard for the day workers just like it's hard for the night workers./It's hard for both the day workers and the night ones . The work that has to be done during the day reflects on the work that has to be done at night . If there is a lot of work to be done during the day, then there will be a lot of work at night. The work that is done during the day is in direct proportion to the work that has to be done at night. Thank you

Hello, I have a question about what words follow this noun 'evidence'. In the following sentence, " There is evidence to show that she entertained the idea of suicide long before this ", 'to show' follows 'evidence' and I have seen a lot of cases without 'to show', like that clause follows 'evidence' without 'to show': ex) Do you have evidence that your husband is cheating on you? I'm wondering if it's okay to use the first sentence without 'to show' and it still means the same. Also, I'm wondering too why to infinitive was used in that clause. I think that 'showing' would be more appropriate. Because showing would mean 'which shows'. Thanks so much, I would really appreciate any help. ...
