An idiom is a combination of words with a special meaning that cannot be inferred from its separate parts. It is an absorbing interest to both foreign and native speakers of the English language. The English language is rich in idioms, and persons with only a superficial knowledge of English idioms will find themselves, more often than not, at a serious disadvantage in their reading, and even more so when they partake in discussions, friendly banters, and debates.

tries to separate the sheep from the goats,

the beauty from the beast, the saints from the sinners,
in a catty, yet meek as a lamb, sort of way.
And I kid you not!
