Excerpt from Some Figurative Usages of Venire and Ire

Such expressions may be found in all departments, from the speech of ordinary life, to dignified prose and elevated poetry.

Some are characteristic of this or that sphere: others occur throughout the entire language whether written or spoken. A few random examples from English, the wealthiest of all lan guages in this department, may be cited by way of illustration. We may fall sick, take leave of our senses, and afterwards come or return to them again. Meanwhile we go or even run mad, crazy or distracted. A man goes to pieces or comes to grief. One enters upon the holy state of matrimony, approaches fifty, drops out of politics. Things come up and about and out, turn up and out. They also come right, go wrong, fall short, dc.

By the verbs of motion an abstract subject is often personified, wholly or in part. So of death, life, youth, age, beauty, time, the powers and manifestations of nature, such as day, night, the seasons.
