CF. Keeping Perspective (Ron Breazeale Ph.D. | Psychology Today, Jan 2016)

※ 발췌 (excerpt):
In our crazy world, it is very easy to lose perspective. We often have a hard time seeing the bigger picture. The media often doesn't help with this, but unfortunately often encourages us to see things in a most negative light. After 911, I did a workshop with some reporters who had covered 911. They were quite willing to admit that their coverage often encouraged people to be more fearful and to see what was happening as being an event that would have a permanent and pervasive impact on everyone's lives in our country. The media also was focused on placing blame for the attack. As they explained, "If it bleeds, it leads."
( ... ... )
Resilience requires that we keep perspective. That we see the bigger picture, realizing that few things and events in our world have a pervasive impact on our lives and are permanent. Thinking clearly without being caught up in the emotions of blame, these are the things that will make our world a better place in which to live.
CF. another example:
What lies behind us and what lies ahead of us are tiny matters to what lies within us. (Ralph Waldo Emerson) This quote is great for helping us keep perspective. It means that what seem like big or difficult things in our lives are small compared to the determination and ability within us.

※ 발췌(excerpt): Since 1801 the motto of the London Stock Exchange expressed in Latin was, "dictum meum pactum". Translated to English it means, "My Word Is My Bond". This motto expressed the practice where agreements and transactions were made with no exchange of documents and no written pledges being given. The assurance was the integrity word of the individual. People's livelihood depended on it. Their life was bound up in their word, and trust was not something to be taken lightly.

[용어] market counterparty

1. Counterparty (Wikipedia)

※ 발췌 (excerpt):
Within the financial services sector, the term market counterparty is used to refer to governments, national banks, national monetary authorities and international monetary organisations such as the World Bank Group that act as the ultimate guarantor for loans and indemnities. The term may also be applied, in a more general sense, to companies acting in this role.

Also within financial services, counterparty can refer to brokers, investment banks, and other securities dealers that serve as the contracting party when completing "over the counter" securities transactions. The term is generally used in this context in relation to "counterparty risk", which is the risk of monetary loss a firm may be exposed to if the counterparty to an over-the-counter securities trade encounters difficulty meeting its obligations under the terms of the transaction.

2. Counterparty (Investopedia)

3. Cayman Islands Monetary Authority─Statement of Guidance: Classification of Clients

※ 발췌 (excerpt):

3.1. It is important to classify clients correctly since the classification of a client
will determine the level of protection that they receive.

3.2. As the diagram below shows, there are two client classifications that mark two different levels of protection; professional clients and private clients. There is also a third category that mainly falls outside the definition of ‘client’ and that is that of market counterparty. Though a professional client can in certain circumstances be re-classified as a market counterparty, and a private clients can in certain circumstances be re-classified as a professional client (see Conduct of Business Regulation 12), a private client can never be re-classified as a market counterparty.

4. Market counterparties

The reason that market counterparties are excluded from the definition of client is that market counterparties are experienced professionals who have full understanding of the way in which the market works and the risks and rewards involved. Market counterparty dealings are lightly regulated. In the Regulations a market counterparty is listed to be either:

• A government (including a quasi-governmental body or a government agency).
• A central bank or other national monetary authority
• A supranational whose members are countries or central banks (e.g. IMF)
• A state investment body or public debt management body
• A professional client where classified as a market counterparty under the
provisions of Regulation12

Song/ Les uns contre les autres

Song/ Sur un prélude de Bach

Lorsque j'entends ce prélude de Bach
Par Glen Gould, ma raison s'envole
Vers le port du Havre et les baraques
Et les cargos lourds que l'on rafistole
Et les torchères, les grues patraques
Les citernes de gasoil

Toi qui courais dans les flaques
Moi et ma tête à claques
Moi qui te croyais ma chose, ma bestiole
Moi je n'étais qu'un pot de colle

Lorsque j'entends ce prélude de Bach
Par Glen Gould, ma raison s'envole
Et toutes ces amours qui se détraquent
Et les chagrins lourds, les peines qu'on bricole
Et toutes mes erreurs de zodiaque
Et mes sautes de boussole

Toi, les pieds dans les flaques
Moi, et ma tête à claques
J'ai pris les remorqueurs pour des gondoles
Et moi, moi je traîne ma casserole

Dans cette décharge de rêves en pack
Qu'on bazarde au prix du pétrole
Pour des cols-blancs et des corbacs
Qui se foutent de Mozart, de Bach

J'donnerais Ray Charles, Mozart en vrac
La vie en rose, le rock'n roll
Tous ces bémols et tous ces couacs
Pour Glen Gould dans c'prélude de Bach.

Dic/ Usages/ I'll say, I would say

I'll say.

  - I agree. (based on the full form 'I will say the same thing')

  - Absolutely. I strongly agree. (Synonym: you can say that again.)

  • "Did you enjoy the film?" "I'll Say."

I'll say! used to show that you agree very strongly with what has been said.
  • "Does he eat a lot?" "I'll say!" 

'I would say' and 'I guess' have the same meaning?

 - I would say he is not coming.
 - I guess he is not coming.

A participant says:

They have only very approximately the same meaning, in that both imply some degree of uncertainty and leave room for others or for facts-on-the-ground to contradict what follows.
  • I would say characterizes what follows as a personal opinion or judgment: ex) From what I know of him I would say he is coming.
  • I guess characterizes what follows as a conjecture or inference: ex) Well, if he were coming he'd be here by now, so I guess he's not coming.

But there's obviously room for some overlap: an opinion may be based on inference, and a conjecture may be based on opinion.
