Talk:the world is one's oyster

Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
Jump to: navigation, search

I wanted to say that a very common, perhaps the most common meaning for, "The world is your oyster" is that you are free to do whatever you want. Life is open to you, and you can do whatever you want, and go wherever you want.

This seems to me not at all the same as " in order to achieve anything in this world, you have to grab the opportunity" Invertzoo 21:32, 1 October 2007 (UTC)
