|Assunto:||Is it never or always in this case?|
Now I´m confused.
From the sentence
“My head was never the same, my ambition was ever the same.”
It does sound like, to my non native ears, the author of the sentence (Matthew Broderick that is) means that his ambition was the same as ever, but his head was not. He said this after a car crash involving casualties.
Would not he say, perhaps, something like "my head and my ambition were never the same" if he meant that his ambition is not the same it was before just like his head?
