Sight for Sore Eyes
A bed of roses
A blast from the past
A bolt from the blue
A diamond is forever
A drop in the bucket
A fate worse than death
A foregone conclusion
A frog in the throat
A hard man is good to find
A horse, a horse, my kingdom for a horse
A house divided against itself cannot stand
A knee jerk reaction
A labour of love
A laughing stock
A leopard cannot change its spots
A lick and a promise
A little knowledge is a dangerous thing
A man after my own heart
A man's got to do what a man's got to do
A Molotov cocktail
A multitude of sins
A picture paints a thousand words
A rose is a rose is a rose
A shot across the bows
A small step for man, a giant leap for mankind
A sorry sight
A square meal
A stool pigeon
A thing of beauty is a joy forever
A whiter shade of pale
Abandon hope all ye who enter here
Absence makes the heart grow fonder
Ace in the hole











All that glitters is not gold
An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth
Apples and pears
As cool as a cucumber
As dead as a doornail
As fit as a fiddle
As happy as a clam
As mad as a hatter
As pure as the driven snow
Ashes to ashes dust to dust
Back seat driver
Barking up the wrong tree
Beat about the bush
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder
Beauty is only skin deep
Been there, done that
Bet your bottom dollar
Better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all
Between a rock and a hard place
Call a spade a spade
Discretion is the better part of valour
Eat drink and be merry
Finger lickin good
Full of piss and vinegar
Genius is one percent inspiration and 99 percent perspiration
Keep up with the Joneses
Like a chicken with its head cut off
Make him an offer he can't refuse
Much Ado about Nothing
No rest for the wicked
On a wing and a prayer
Speak softly and carry a big stick
The Ball is in your court
The die has been cast
Walk the plank
What's up Doc?
You are what you eat
