The World of Idioms-3
I am back with another post about the world of Idioms and I start with " I want hear from the horse's mouth" meaning the original source of the quotation is the most authentic. Another one "you can't teach old dog new tricks" meaning it is hard to change people who are old and are entrenched in their way of doing things. "As you sow, so shall you reap" this one pertains to the word Karma as you have initiated an action be prepared to face the consequences good or bad. Another one is that "action speaks louder than words" and it is very much relevant that most people are good with words but when it is time to act they chicken out. "A slap on the wrist" is when a judge gives a punishment to a criminal which does not fit the crime because it is so light. “A dime a dozen" is what I call everything which is in abundant like nowadays (relevant to me) MBAs are like that since you can find many and they are not worth their time and effort. "Absence makes the heart grow fonder" and it is this that is so much for me as my father passed away four years ago and there is never a day where I don’t miss him and this says that separation makes you want somebody more that you love. If you do something which seems to you easy but to others difficult you can use the idiom "a piece of cake". And finally (for this post) if you buy something which costs you so much money that you feel robbed, you can say that thing cost me "an arm and a leg" which means very expensive and beyond your budget. So check out my previous posts on this topic and see that if you had enough of idioms to go through your life.
