    Let bygones be bygones = Let's forget about all unpleasant things that have happened.
    Enough is enough = There must be a limit to that. For instance, a mother says to her son, - You're always plaing games instead of doing your homework. Enough is enough. You shall not approach the laptop since now.
    War is war
    A girl is a girl
    Life is life
    A father is a father
    A war is a war

    thanks
    Cheers

    All of these share a common feature. Basically, it means things are what they are. Don't expect them to be different than they are.
