at the end of one's rope  --  wow,everybody's got a rope,and it's bound to have an end;used to describe someone who's too exhausted to push things forward
on one's last legs  --  used to say that a person's on the brink of death or crush
hot under the collar  --  very angry
made a splash  --  hit the headline,got attention all over
have the world by the tail  --  feel like a million dollars
sitting pretty  --  be in a advantageous position
get away clean
come alive
blow one's own horn
stick to one's guns  --  principles
get the ball rolling
give it one's best shot  --  do one's best on sth
make ends meet  -- scrape by
gat the jump on someone  --  get an advantage over someone
spread oneself too thin 
money talks  --  money is everything
let sleeping dogs lie
shape up or ship out  --  stay well or leave now
If the shoe fits,wear it.
bark worse than one's bite
Those live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones.
All's well that end's well.
go in one ear and out the other
have a way with sth  --  be good at sth
in next to no time  --  immediately
in the works  --  getting ready
look on the bright sides of things
on the tip of one's tongue
That's easier said than done
There's nothing to it.  --  something that you say in order to tell someone that something is very easy to do
around the clock
be in the dark  --  be at sea
walls have ears
beat around  --  do not talk in a direct manner
