2022-09-28 07:30:29 verbal diarrhoea
INFORMAL


Meaning
If someone has verbal diarrhoea, they can't stop talking.


For example

Janice has a real bad case of verbal diarrhoea. It's like she's afraid of silence and has to keep talking to block it out.

I don't know if you could say he's got verbal diarrhoea, but Alan sure does talk a lot.

2022-09-27 11:03:28 There is a time to speak and a time to be silent



Meaning
We should know when to say something and when to say nothing.

Origin
Like many "There is a time..." proverbs, this proverb is based on the Bible (Ecclesiastes 3):

To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:

A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;

A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;

A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;

A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;

A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;

A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;

A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.

This friend of ours has just started putting out his own zine. It's about music and the arts in Melbourne.

2022-09-24 07:30:39 zebra crossing



Meaning
A zebra crossing is a pedestrian crossing that is marked on the road with painted black and white stripes.


For example

Visitors to Britain are sometimes confused when they're told there's a zebra crossing up ahead. Some even expect to see a zebra walking across the road.

If someone steps onto a zebra crossing, all cars must stop and wait for them to cross the road.

Variety: This idiom is typically used in British English but may be used in other varieties of English too.

2022-09-20 20:25:18 cross that bridge when we come to it



Meaning
You can say "we'll cross that bridge when we come to it" if someone mentions a problem that might occur in the future, but you want them to think about what's happening now instead.


For example

Martin asked what we'd do if our new company couldn't find good staff when we needed to expand, and I said we'll cross that bridge when we come to it.

Jenny worries too much about things that might happen in the future, so people are always saying "We'll cross that bridge when we come to it" to her.

2022-09-20 10:23:52 God helps them that help themselves
