Discussion and comments
*A tricky piece of grammar. The meaning in Japanese is as follows:
〜ときは、いつも
〜ときも、ときも

*「Aにつけ、Bにつけ」 is a common construction. A and B are often pairs or two of a kind, such as strong/weak, good/evil, etc.

FORMATION:
V(plain form) + につけ
いA + につけ

Hmm... what's the difference between nitsuke and tabini?
Darrkangel
There is no difference, they have the same meaning
ZekkDistor
tabini and nituke have a slight differense. In "nituke" after the pattern there come phrases expressing feelings/emotions or emotional patterns. So that the meaning of "nituke" - whenever someone happens to be in same situation, always has certain feelings and thus does something.

@dc The links on the "see also" section are the same. Maybe these are the links meant to be in there? ->
