    General: You will always stay fool

    Hi,
    In Persian language we have an idiom or a sentence which in English it means "You will never be human"
    We angrily say it to a friend or a person who always does foolish things and makes a trouble for us.
    When we encounter such friends we usually angrily say: "Alex, you will never be human"

    In fact it means "You will never get corrected or there is no hope for you to be a polite person in the future. You will always stay as a fool"

    Is there any sentence like that to be used in English?
    Once a nonnative English told me try this sentence: "Alex, there is no hope for you or Alex you are beyond hope"
    Is there one in your mind? What's your opinion?

    No source/Self made general question
    Thank you

    "Alex, there is no hope for you" or "Alex you are beyond hope"
    These seem OK to me.
