The world of Idioms
I must admit that I don’t know very many idioms but I do love them and use it frequently whenever the need arises. Idioms are a fun way to express what one feels about a person without offending them in the process but they still get the message and also to say it in a way that is not insulting for anybody. I use the one called "Birds of a feather flock together" meaning people of the same kind or view or race or whatever is common among them stay together. Another one is “don’t cry over spilt milk" meaning that if something is done mistakenly, don’t cry over it and get out with your lives. "The grass is greener on the other side of the pasture" it means that one always feel that something is always better than what they have now. The same goes with "all that glitters is not gold" which is not all things seems to be worth the gold they look. One of my favorite ones is "a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush" as it states that what you have in hand in certainty is worth more than two with uncertainty. The best one of all (and I sure there are others which I may not have heard or not use it that often) is "more loyal than the king". It just means that who can be more loyal than the king to his kingdom and it can equally applied in these times since I have had bosses who are really fiercely more loyal than the management of the company and who sometimes questions the motive of the managers like they own the place or they know more than the owner or the manager of the company.
