pursue 追求，追随 “追求女孩，不要怕输”
- pursue:  Pursue is first cousin to prosecute. Both go back ultimately to Latin prōsequī ‘follow up, pursue’. This led fairly directly to English prosecute, but it also seems to have had a Vulgar Latin descendant *prōsequere, which passed into English via Old French porsivre and Anglo-Norman pursuer as pursue.
=> prosecute, sue, suit
- pursue (v.)
- late 13c., "to follow with hostile intent," from Anglo-French pursuer and directly from Old French poursuir (Modern French poursuivre), variant of porsivre "to chase, pursue, follow; continue, carry on," from Vulgar Latin *prosequare, from Latin prosequi "follow, accompany, attend; follow after, escort; follow up, pursue," from pro- "forward" (see pro-) + sequi "follow" (see sequel). Meaning "to proceed, to follow" (a path, etc.), usually figurative (a course of action, etc.), is from late 14c. This sense also was in Latin. Related: Pursued; pursuing. For sense, compare prosecute.
