    Chers amis: Bon vendredi! Quelle est la traduction anglaise de cette expression; “Se monte a pied”?? Is it: to go up on foot.”?? Par exemple: “Une reputation ca se monte a pied et ca se descend en toboggan: Les reponses, svp. RAPIDEMENT! Bon week-end, mes amis. A bientot!

    Warren Buffett expressed the same idea this way: “It takes twenty years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it.” Now that you know that, can you see what your phrase means literally?

    Cher Andy: I guess it literally means: “A reputation goes up on foot and it goes down on a tobogan!”
