    I'm afraid I don't understand your question. Check the word "expend" in your dictionary. I don't think it is the word you want.

    OK, now you have the word "expand". I still don't know what you are looking for. Are you saying that "Self-done is well-done" is an example of expansion of an idea? Are you trying to expand upon the idea of "Self-done is well-done"? What do you think "Self-done is well-done" means?

    Yes.I meant that "Self-done is well-done" is an statement for the expansion of an idea? I am trying to expand upon the idea of "Self-done is well-done". How does I can write a short Essay while expending this Idea?

    Neither "essay" nor "idea" need to be capitalised and "How does I can ...?" is incorrect. I am sure you know that. In your last sentence, you said "expending" again. You must learn to take care with your posts. You have been using the forum long enough to know that we do not do your work for you. Write a short essay, post it in the Editing and Writing Topics section and we will look at it. Why have you chosen an essay topic that you don't understand how to expand upon and can't write an essay about? Your method of learning English seems to be somewhat haphazard to say the least.

    Can you differentiate in between "take care" and "look after"?.

    Can I recommend a good dictionary?

    take care - definition of take care by the Free Online Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia.

    take care
    To be careful: Take care or you will slip on the ice.

    take care of [look after]
    To assume responsibility for the maintenance, support, or treatment of.
