The World is Your Oyster In my last blog post, I wrote about some of the vocabulary that we associate with the season of autumn. Words like apples, leaves, pumpkin, nuts, squirrels, trees, orange, red, soup, casserole, golden, chestnuts, mist and plenty more. In this post, I’d like to share with you 10 idioms that I’ve found related to some of the words above. So let’s start with the word ‘autumn’ itself. 1. Autumn years – it is often used to refer to the later years in someone’s life“In his autumn years, Peter was able to enjoy his garden a lot more” The Secret Life of Trees: The Astonishing Science of What Trees Feel and How They Communicate Trees dominate the world’s the oldest living organisms.

He was a writer and also a humorist, satirist and lecturer. 40 Belief-Shaking Remarks From a Ruthless Nonconformist If there’s one thing Friedrich Nietzsche did well, it’s obliterate feel-good beliefs people have about themselves. He has been criticized for being a misanthrope, a subvert, a cynic and a pessimist, but I think these assessments are off the mark. I believe he only wanted human beings to be more honest with themselves. He did have a remarkable gift for aphorism — he once declared, “It is my ambition to say in ten sentences what others say in a whole book.” A hundred years after his death, Nietzsche retains his disturbing talent for turning a person’s worldview upside-down with one jarring remark.
