    There are pleasant thing that includes some unpleasant things, for example, for some people it's nice to exercise but they dislikes get tired. Explaining this phrase, the peach is delicious for many people, but their fluff is disagreeable for them, There are many other examples of things that are good in themselves but includes other unpleasant.

    I Hope my explanation help you, sorry for my bad english.

    Bye.

    Thank you Salvadorm! So if I´m to understand correctly the significance is that nothing is perfect? All good things come with their bad things? That´s really interesting. I don´t think we have an expression for that in English. Thank you once again!

    Hi, Salvadorm gave a very good explanation.

    Also, it is said " si te gusta el durazno, aguatate el carozo"
    " Carozo" means the pit of the peach. The meaning is exactly the samel.

    Hey Guys! What the h... is happening with your keyboards!
    First off, Adam: it is "pelusa" with an "s". And Diego...you've swallowed the "n" from "aguantate" (some Spanish flavors will demand an accent on the "a", too -aguántate-).

    Gentle,

    I skpped the "n" because I typed quickly. It is not an excuse though.
    But, the way we say and write "aguantate" is like this; without accent. I am from Argentina.

    Everything bad comes with something good and Everything good comes with something bad, it's the Yin-Yang philosophy.
