Would you be kind enough to share with me your authoritative opinion concerning my interpretation of the expressions in bold in the following two sentences?
1.He wondered what devil had inspired him to take up the art of healing.
to take up the art of healing = to become a doctor
art = craft
2. “I mean it.” the doctor said. “You’ve had it, that’s that.”
you have had it, that’s that = it can't be helped = nothing can be done about it = there's no more to be said or done; the matter is finished,
Thank you for your efforts.
