cliches from poems

absence makes the heart grow fonder

[add fuel to the fire]

afraid of one's shadow (Shakes)

against the grain (Shakes)

albatross around one's neck

all ears

all hell breaks loose

a poor thing but my own (Shakes)

as luck would have it (Shakes)

one fell swoop (shakes)

ok, discontinuing Shakespeare

wit's end

at the crossroads

babe in the woods

bane of existence

beat one's brains out (verse play)

****beauty is only skin deep****

bee in one's bonnet

beg borrow or steal

bellow like a bull

bell the cat

best-laid schemes (belated robert burns' day)

be that as it may

better half
