In the summer this year I lost 100 $ on the street. Not a joke!
I took a big lesson and I will never keep money among my other papers in my pocket anymore. That was painful, but when I remembered one phrase (cliche), everything changed.
It could be worse. That cheered me a lot. :)
Hey, if you find 100 $ note on the street, that’s mine. :)
Meanwhile, let's learn 7 other cliches you may want to use to end your conversation or cheer up yourself as well as your friends when things go wrong.
1. Never mind! We all make mistakes
I use it whenever the person I talk to shares his mistake he made in the past and finds it hard to focus on the future.
2. Cheer up! It is not end of the world
I use it when some of my students or new students fail their exams and feel really depressed about life and about everything that surrounds them.
3. Better late than never!
I usually post a new article on English Club Pro every Monday, Wednesday and Friday but sometimes I get lazy and publish nothing during the whole week. Then when I come up with an awesome idea, I write a post and publish it online. But before making it online I say “Better late than sorry”.
4. No news is good news.
From time to time I bump into my old students in the city and when we ask each other what news we have, it quickly become clear there is no news. So we both say, “No news is good news” and laugh together.
5. Live and let live.
Whenever someone posts a picture on Facebook complaining or judging others I say, “Live and let live” which basically means you are enjoying your own life and let others enjoy theirs.
6. Oh, well. You live and learn.
Does this ever happen to you? You trust someone, start something big and then one day he fails you? That very moment I say, “Oh, well. You live and learn”.
7. All’s well that ends well.
In the end when everything ends well, I say, “All is well, that ends well”.
