Engleza de joi/ Have an axe to grind

Have an axe to grind = to have a ​strong ​personal ​opinion about something that you ​want ​people to ​accept and that is the ​reason why you do something.

I have an axe to grind about fairness…

Or as dear Somerset (Maugham) used to say: “It is unsafe to take your reader for more of a fool than he is. ”

 

What I have learned in business is to always dress up the truth in the most beautiful words I can muster.

Julius von Klever

 

When you paint like this, words are speechless…

She is primarily a teacher of English. Also her mind is lured by goodies like finance, economics, interest rates, the stock market, as she has a hankering for how the money is made. Nevertheless she is a dreamer on a cloud...As dreams cost nothing... In ordinary days she is a word-weaver for everything and everything that breathes. In the best of days she just follows the seasons by means of bike, skis, or roller-skates. She is grateful to all colors of the world and to people who read, laugh, smile and drop a line here, or on her email.
