xTinx Posted November 9, 2015 Report Share Posted November 9, 2015 What's interesting about this idiomatic expression is that although it might sound like it's cursing, it's actually not. There's also a great deal of intensity attached to it. It has a no-care tone, as if daring the world to turn the tides. And at the end of the day, you (the speaker who uses this idiom) will still persevere. For example:I will love him come hell or high.Come hell or high water, I will graduate with honors.This idiom simply means doing whatever it takes to reach a goal or make something possible. anna3101 and linguaholic 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
