Two expressions with eye


This strange expression is believed to have its origins in the Bible. It means the person you adore, love and cherish most. For example, Her boyfriend is the Apple of her eye, and she wants to marry him.




I think this one is quite easy to understand! Some people think a person or a piece of art is beautiful while another  might think it is nothing special or even that it or they are ugly.
