Hello again,
In my text, a man is listening to a tape of Zen philosophy but I have only one sentence and I don't know what is it speaking about :
"The greatest mistake is to be continually fearful of making one."
"La plus grande erreur est d'avoir continuellement peur de ???"
Does somebody could tell me what it could be about ?
Thank you very much for your help.

    ...peur d'en commettre une.

    Je ne suis pas sûre que cela soit une bonne traduction (l'erreur de ta vie ? bof) mais bon... L'original: « The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one. »

    Personnellement je dirais : "La plus grande erreur dans la vie, est d'avoir continuellement peur d'en faire une."
