    Re: walk of life

    Hi goingtocalifornia,

    walk of life = careers in general

    walk of life - a trade, profession, or occupation, as in:

    "He'll do well in whatever walk of life he chooses."

    This expression uses "walk" in sense of "line of work".

    walks of life = an occupation, profession,or social class.

    "People from all walks of life support the cause."

    Regards.

    V.

    Re: walk of life

    He was a barman at that time, and he had been working with dedication. That was his walk of life. He had the opportunity to meet people from different walks of life.

    I think I got it right.

    Thanks vil.
