Deep wisdom from ‘Through the Looking Glass’

"Read the directions and directly you will be directed in the right direction."

"... you see, it takes all the running you can do, to keep in the same place. If you want to get somewhere else, you must run at least twice as fast as that!"

"Take care of the sounds and the sense will take care of itself."

Rule out

Generally speaking, 'rule out' is a phrasal verb which means

"to decide that a course of action is impossible" like in:The bus and train strike ruled out any possibility of us going shopping.

The flo-joe site has already been mentioned here. What I particularly like about the site is their word bank with everyday practice, which indeed makes perfect.

This time I think it would be a good idea to start a new thread, precisely the one about phrasal verbs. (I hope they don't mind my re-posting their example)
