One Heart Cannot Use (For) Two (Purposes)

(There) exists (one) “sentence” (of) old saying (that) says well, “One heart cannot use (for) two (purposes).” One “ge” (of) person cannot (at) the-same-time do two “jian” (of) things. (At) the-same-time doing two “jian” (of) things, two “jian” (of) things both do-not-have-the-potential-to-be-able-to (be) done well. Wǒmen zuò yí jiàn shīqing yīnggāi bǎ tā zuǒ hǎo, bú yào tóngshì xiǎng zhe、zuò zhe qítā shìqing.

Some people probably will have other opinions, they will say, how (is it that) “one heart” cannot “(be) used (for) two (purposes)”? Isn’t (it that we) (at the) time (of) eating meal can (at) the-same-time watch news? Isn’t (it that we) also (at the) time (of) playing piano can (at) the-same-time sing songs? However, (what) “one heart cannot use (for) two (purposes)” talks-about are not these simple things, (it is) those things (that we) should do carefully, (and) with-great-effort. One “ge” (of) person can play piano while sing songs, (it) “is because” they already (have) learned-(with the result of)-knowing how to play, (and) how to sing. (At the) time (that) they are learning to playing (the) piano, isn’t (it that they) should only practice piano carefully, (and) do not (at) the-same-time be-thinking-about how (the) songs (are) sung? Wait (until) they arrives (the) time (to) learn to sing songs, (they) also should only carefully practice singing songs, (and) should not again always be-thinking-about how to play (the) piano. Also, (at the) time (when) we drive vehicles, (it is the time that we) should not (be) “one hear two uses” the most, especially is (that we) cannot use (the) cellphones, right (or) not right?
