    for ever and ever

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to give me a leg up with the interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentences?

    Miss Sedley was almost as flurried at the act of defiance as Miss Jemima had been; for, consider, it was but one minute that she had left school, and the impressions of six years are not got over in that space of time. Nay, with some persons those awes and terrors of youth last for ever and ever.

    for ever and ever = through endless ages = through life = as long as one lives = in all one’s days = til one’s death

    Thanks for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V.
