Strike While The Iron Is Hot..............



Act decisively and take your opportunities when they arise.

This old proverb clearly alludes to the imagery of the blacksmith or farrier at his forge. If he delays in shaping the iron when it is hot a pliable the metal soon cools and hardens and the opportunity is lost.

Silence is golden.........


A proverbial saying, often used in circumstances where it is thought that saying nothing is preferable to speaking and saying something you may regret in the long run.


Although this precise phrase was first recorded only in 1848, it is part of a much older proverb, “Speech is silver and silence is golden.”

If you fight tooth and nail for something, you fight as hard as you can to get it or achieve it.

The adverbial phrase “tooth and nail” (originally “with tooth and nail”) literally means “with the use of one's teeth and nails as weapons; by biting and scratching,” according to the Oxford English Dictionary.

In Pie Order/In Apple-Pie Order.....



If a place is in pie order, everything in it is very tidy and well-organized : in perfect order.

Sidebar: The phrase may originate from the French 'nappes pliees' = neatly folded, or from 'cap-a-pie order'. There's no definitive evidence to support this and the origin remains uncertain.

Bee’s knees..................
