Honour among Thieves



Honour among Thieves :



Holy Smoke! :

This is a way of expressing surprise.

  • “Holy smoke! Look at all of those geese!”




    Home and Hearth :

    HOME AND HEARTH is an idiom evoking warmth and security.




    Home is Where You Lay Your Hat. :

    Where you are comfortable and at ease with yourself is your home regardless where you were born or brought up.




    Home Stretch :

    The home stretch is the last part of something, like a journey race or project.

  • I have almost completed the task. I am at the home stretch.




    Home Sweet Home :

    This is said when one is pleased to be back at one’s own home.

  • We went on a sightseeing trip to Kodaikkanal and are back home. It was so nice to be there, but nothing can match our home sweet home.




    Home James :

    This is a clichéd way of telling the driver of a vehicle to start driving. It is supposed to be an order to a chauffeur. The complete idiomatic expression is “home, James, and don’t spare the horses.’




    Honest Truth :

    If someone claims that something is the honest truth, they wish to sound extra-sincere about something.




    Honour among Thieves :

    If someone says there is honour among thieves, this means that even corrupt or bad people sometimes have a sense of honour or integrity or justice even if it is skewed.




    Honours are Even :

    If honours are even, then a competition has ended with neither side emerging as a winner.




    Hook, Line and Sinker :

    If somebody accepts or believes something hook, line and sinker, they accept it completely.




    Hop, Skip and A Jump :

    If a place is a hop, skip and a jump from somewhere, it is only a shout distance away.




    Hope against Hope :

    If you hope against hope, you hope for something even though there is little or no change of your wish being fulfilled.

  • India is hoping against hope that her neighbours will become reasonable and just.
