<< From Longman Online Dictionary >>
apply oneself -- to work hard at something, especially with a lot of attention for a long time
Example: Stephen would do well if only he applied himself.

這是由 Kevin Kline 主演的 “The emperor’s club” 所學到的片語. (好片值得一看!! ~~)
劇中, Mr. Hundert (Kevin Kline) 對學生的父親, Senator Bell, 所說的: “… Your son is not applying himself.” 意指 Senator Bell 的兒子, Sedgewick Bell, 並未盡全力在他的課業上.
