It refers to having three sails rigged on a sailing boat, a sail was also known as a sheet. I think it was a tactic used in runnng a boat through a storm, erratically, hence b…ecoming a simile for being drunk and unable to walk in a straight line... The term "sheet" refers to the rope used to secure the sail. It took three ropes to properly secure the sails on the ship. Having three "sheets" loose or "in the wind" would cause the ship to move about much like a drunk person staggering. Hence the original wording of the phrase "three sheets IN the wind". As far as most can find, the first written instance of this saying was in 1821.
I believe the expression 'to get your goat' has it's origins in horse racing. Race horses are very high-strung animals. Goats are often used as companion animals, to keep a …horse calm. Someone wanting to fix a race would slip into the barn the night before the race, steal the goat, then an upset, distracted horse would run a bad race. Hence, if you are upset and not at your best, it is said that 'someone has gotten your goat.' Further, this cliche has been replaced by the modern slang idiom, " push your buttons ", meaning successfully annoying you or even angering you. Not as colourful imagery as the original expression, but much easier to understand for people in a modern technological society. Other Opinions: I disagree. I think this expression comes from the use of a goat as bait for big game hunters. For instance, if the tiger" gets your goat", and you don't bag a tiger, you've got one ticked off hunter on your hands. Most horse people I know keep a donkey as a stablemate for skittish horses. The racehorse story is correct. It's possible that there are two separate origins for the same term, but in the USA, where there are no tigers, the goat was used as a companion for the high-strung racehorse, and if someone got his goat, the horse would run a bad race. Or it might backfire and the horse runs faster than ever. But that's the American origin of "get your goat," and Brewers Origins of Phrase and Fable classifies this as an "Americanism," so that casts the tiger story into great doubt.
if you say that something can be done if push comes to shove, you mean that it can be done if the situation becomes so bad that you have to do it. Example: Look, if push c…omes to shove we'll just have to sell the car.
ongoing conversation with no meaning; an insult.
This saying means that someone is not as gullible or as easily fooled as others might think. It is an indication that the speaker has "been around" long enough to know whe…n a statement is false, or when someone is trying to con him or her.
It means His power, authority, will. Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. 10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. 11 Give us …this day our daily bread. 12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. 13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen. 14 For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: 15 But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses. Matt 6:9-15 (KJV) FURTHER The word kingdom means king's domain and it is a type of government with a king as it's head. Jesus was teaching us to pray for God's Kingdom to "come," that is, excercise authority over the earth, as it is in heaven, so that God's will, or purpose, will be accomplished here on the earth, as it is in heaven. In Daniel chapter 2, the Bible prophesied about that kingdom. Daniel had a dream about an immense image that pictured world rulers and governments. Then in verse 44 it says, "And in the days of those kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be brought to ruin. And the kingdom itself will not be passed on to any other people. It will crush and put an end to all these kingdoms, and it itself will stand to times indefinite." So God's Kingdom, a real government, will "crush and put an end" to all other kingdoms that stand in opposition to his kingdom. Isaiah 9:6,7 tells us that Jesus Christ is appointed to rule that kingdom. He is the now-reigning king over God's Kingdom, and soon that kingdom will "come" and bring about God's will for the earth, as Jesus has taught us to pray for. When will that be? Jesus gave us a composite sign in Matthew 24, beginning with the 3rd verse, that includes warfare, famine, sickness, crime, a general lack of love in the world, and other things. In 2 Timothy 3: starting with the 1st verse, Paul wrote that the last days before God's Kingdom will "come" will be marked by critical times and people would have no natural affection, would be dissobedient to parents, unthankful, disloyal, lovers of themselves, haughty, puffed up with pride, and many other things. These indicators and more from the Bible tells us that we are now living in the time period when soon God's Kingdom will "come" as Jesus taught us to pray for. Nobody on earth knows exactly the day nor hour, but we can discern that it is close from fullfilled Bible prophecy. Answer The gospels refer to two kingdoms (1) the kingdom of God the Son, Jesus Christ which we enter through baptism and where we remain until the Last Day when "He will deliver the kingdom to God the Father after destroying every rule, every authority and power" (2) The kingdom of God the Father "Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the Kingdom of their Father" As it appears that the Kingdom of God the Father will not be open to us until the Last Day I presume that this is the reason for saying "Thy kingdom come"
'I understand your point of view' It does not indicate agreement, just comprehension
Translation/definition for... I think you mean "fete accompli" and if so, it is from french, and it basically means "festival/celebration/event …accomplished" Correct phrase is 'fait accompli' and translates, more or less, accomplished fact.

It's from the US Appalachian Mountains -- it means "just a little way." Think of the distance you can spit and that you can "holler" or yell. A "holler" also means a small val…ley, so it could mean "just the next valley" as well.
