When we take a walk in any of the cities in the modern society， we can often observe such a sad scene in which social interactions have been grievously diminishing. 图画的作者并不是要我们去洞察宠物的多少，而是要表达更加深层的内涵，即由于生活方式的改变，人们之间亲近的情感变得疏远，继而移情于动物身上。
What a sad scene! 多么凄惨的景象!
A well-known poem by Tang Dynasty writer Du Mu tells of a sad scene in early April: "rains fall heavily as Qingming comes, and passers-by with lowered spirits go." Qingming Day, the traditional tomb-sweeping day, falls on April 4-6 each year. 唐朝著名诗人杜牧有一首著名的诗，描述了四月初令人伤感的一幕场景：“清明时节雨纷纷，路上行人欲断魂。”
Tears poured forth as she watched the sad scene. 她一看到这悲惨的场景，便禁不住流下泪来。
The person of ingratitude has a sad exit at last. 那个忘恩负义的人最终的下场很可悲。
This once beautiful ship is in a sad condition now. 那麽漂亮的船现在成了这种样子了。
