Você provavelmente já ouviu falar do ditado: "na vida há duas formas de aprender: pelo amor ou pela dor". Como dizer isso em inglês?

Português: aprender (ou) pelo amor ou pela dor
Inglês: learn either the easy way or the hard way; *learn either through love or through pain

By the hook or by the crook.

"I will get houses for the people by the hook or by the crook"

Perhaps it meant that it would take pains to others politicos to agree with him in the housing matter, or at least it was what he meant. That is, he meant he would be (or play) the maverick, if it was what it took to get houses to the people.

One way or another.

You have to learn French one way or another if you are to remain in Paris.
