Would you tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expressions in bold in the following sentences?
He’ll be along here for a rise in the rent, come what may. When the time come for the raising his sights he’ll have no consideration at all. (Chjaplin’s “The Watchers and the Watched”)
come what may = be sure , as in:
Seasons may change, winter to springBut I love you, until the end of time Come what mayCome what may
raise one’s sights = augment one’s demands
Thank you for your efforts.
Come what may = whatever happens in the future.
Raising his sights = giving himself higher goals to aim for.
