Idioms in Pictures

In the spoken and written English of today, idiom is an established, universal and essential element which, when used with care, ornaments and enriches language. Here are a few Idioms that have been compiled in the book English Composition: Idioms .

Dream what you want to dream,  

Go where you want to go,

Be what you want to be,

Because you have only one life

And one chance to do all the things you want in life.

 Goodness is Power

 The God who is constantly creating, re-creating and renewing the world and the universes is within you. He works through attraction and energy. Everything has a vibratory frequency; as Paul of Tarsus says, “God is able to provide you with every blessing in abundance.” Abundance is the product of a creative mind.

 Dig a well before you feel thirsty.

Planning is everything. If you do not plan your day, you cannot have a good day. If you do not think about the future, you cannot have one.

 

Goodness Ever Wins:

Goodness is the only investment that never fails.

Man proposes, God disposes. God makes, man shapes.

Energetic goodness puts a steadfast spirit within you.

Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

Whatever makes men good, makes then good citizens?
