He or she has feet of clay.
What does it Mean to Have "Feet of Clay"?
Student or Learner
I need an idiom to describe the person or the following situation.
When you compliment someone on being very good at doing things, you think everything is ok with him / her. You are so sure that you never think he / she will fail. But after a lot of praise and compliment, he / she fails.
Is there an idiom about this?
Thank you very much. A nice idiom.
But please if there is something else that is close to this context, let me know.
I've read 'Homer nodded' [Homer being famously wise/omniscient and 'nodding' meaning he drifted off/went to sleep], but I've never used it or heard it used.
