      “I often make a point of completing the day's work without undue procrastination.”


      (10)Reach the point of no return:不可走回头路;不可反悔。

      “The TV company has offered Lisa an unconditional 5-year contract. It has reached the point of no return and cannot change its decision.”


      (11)A sore point with...:令人讨厌的事。

      “Sally's boy friend, Samuel, went to dinner without inviting her. This is a sore point with her and whenever she thinks of this, she becomes unhappy.”


      (12)The sticking point:(谈判、讨论时)不易达致协议之点。

      “How the boundary is to be drawn seems to be the sticking point in the peace talk between the two neighbouring countries.”


      (13)That's the (whole)point:那就是问题的惩结了。
