    Default Thai sentences to English please

    Hi guys and girl

    I am still a basic thai reader, could anyone help me with the following sentences, it look like some philosophical narrative. It might be aimed at some person or maybe not. I am more interested in what that could mean rather than the literal translation.

    เด็กก็คือเด็ก....พูดให้ใครฟังเขาก็ว่าเด็กพูดไปจะให้รู้จักความก็ใช่เรื่อง
    ก็เหมือนคนเขามี...จะไม่พูด?
    คนพูดสิอยากอวดอยากมี..
    ลงมือทำมือสร้าง..หาเท่ารัยก็ไม่อดตาย
    คนพูดสิ..อวดจะตายก็เห็นเท่าเดิม..
    (ขอบคุณกับคนที่ว่าให้แค่นั้นละ)

    Thanks guys.

    I assume you have tried Google Translate

    The children are children .... Speak to anyone, he said that the child will speak to know it.
    It's like he has ... will not say?
    People say I want to boast.
    I do not know how to do it.
    People say I will die, I see the same ..
    (Thanks to that person for that)

    Hi mate

    Yes I tried google translate and a few others, yet I don't understand the meaning of it.

    Can you give the context and source of the text?

    The most likely context would be a Thai Girl, got offered/given something (non material) she had been hoping for and which might maybe attract jealousy from her friends ? Even despite this context it is hard for me to decipher the whole meaning, for example "People say I will die, I see the same .." ?
    Thanks.

    Using another translate service (with my interpretation):

    เด็กก็คือเด็ก....พูดให้ใครฟังเขาก็ว่าเด็กพูดไปจะให้รู้จักความก็ใช่เรื่อง
    to be childish therefore be immature, offer to talk to someone who will listen. criticise for being immature to go away, will let someone know (more follows).
    or
    kids will be kids, talk to anyone he said the children will know about it, yes.

    ก็เหมือนคนเขามี...จะไม่พูด?
    also it's like he will not say
    or
    it's like he's not going to say

    คนพูดสิอยากอวดอยากมี..
    people want to show off (flaunt) want to have
    or
    people say I look like a show off

    ลงมือทำมือสร้าง
    start (set about) hand producing (?)

    ..........


    ขอบคุณกับคนที่ว่าให้แค่นั้นละ
    be thankful with others that offer only (?)
    or
    Thanks to the people that were there
