    Let bygones be bygones.

    Hi teachers,

    Let bygones be bygones
    .
    Let be gone by gone. Are these correct and have the same meaning as "what's done is done"?

    Many thanks.

    The first is fine and is a well-known phrase. I have never heard the second and it doesn't make sense.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
