Usage Note :
Do not confuse always and ever. If something always happens, it happens regularly or on every occasion. I would always ask for the radio to be turned down… He’s always been an active person. If something is always the case, it is true at all times. No matter what she did, she would always be forgiven. You use ever, for example in negative sentences, questions, and with superlatives, to talk about any time at all when referring to the past, present, or future. No one ever came… Will I ever see France? …the nicest thing anyone’s ever said to me.
不要混淆always和ever。always指总是或每次都是：I would always ask for the radio to be turned down（我总是要求将收音机的音量调小），He’s always been an active person（他总是很积极）。always也可指始终或一直：No matter what she did, she would always be forgiven（无论她做了什么，总是可以得到谅解）。ever用于否定句、疑问句或最高级，表示过去、现在或将来的任何时候：No one ever came（没有人来过），Will I ever see France（我以后能有机会去法国吗），the nicest thing anyone’s ever said to me（别人对我说过的最中听的话）。
