Carry on, seguir

El verbo ‘carry‘ significa literalmente ‘llevar’, ‘transportar’

Si se le adjunta la preposición ‘on‘, asume, en cambio, el significado de ‘seguir‘. Por ejemplo, seguir una conversación, un juego, etc.

Please, carry on. I didn’t mean to interrupt you.

Man will occasionally stumble over the truth, but usually manages to pick himself up, walk over or around it, and carry on.
Winston Churchill

If we are to reach peace in this world and if we are to carry on a war against war, we shall have to begin with the children
Mahatma Gandhi
