    nobody is nobody

    "Nobody is nobody, unless you really hate someone you can say he/she is a nobody."


    What is 'nobody is nobody'? Is it proper English?

    Do you say, "everybody is somebody"? What does it mean?

    Thanks

    Re: nobody is nobody

    "Nobody" has two meanings
    a. no person.
    b. someone with no importance; small fry.

    In your sentence, give this two meanings to your "nobodies":

    "No person is small fry, unless you hate..."

    Re: nobody is nobody

    Is 'nobody is nobody' a commonly known term or someone is trying to play the game of words?


    And also I'd appreciate if you can answer the rest of the question at beginning.


    Thanks
