    Bridge too far

    Hello,

    In his TV shows, the well-known adventurer Bear Grylls uses sometimes a phrase a bridge too far in describing something very hard to achieve. Is it a common English idiom?

    Thanks a lot.

    Re: Bridge too far

    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    — Arthur Schopenhauer
