Here's tonight's Words/Quotation of the Day", shared by Beryl Chen:

The bee’s knee: Excellent (優秀的)

Bees carry pollen back to the hive on their legs. It alludes to the concentrated goodness to be found around a bee’s knee. The bee’s knee is an expression to say that something or someone is exceptionally good.
So next time when someone asks you, “How is NCBTC’s meeting?”
You could answer, “The meeting is the bee’s knees”.
The cream of the crop: Elite(精英)

Cream is the richest part of the milk and rises to the top. It alludes to the best part of something. And the crop means a group of people or things that have appeared together. So the cream of the crop means the best of the best. The phrase refers to the person who is at the top of his or her profession, class or art.
Let’s hear the example. Next month we are going to hold a meeting to select the cream of the crop for the humorous competition.
Big wig: VIP(重量級人物)

In the past, wigs were virtually obligatory for all European nobility and “persons of quality.” Now big wig is an expression to say someone who is important, like a president, VIP, a leader of a group and so on.
Next time when you introduce Grace to guests, you could say “Grace is a big wig of NCBTC.”

“Fortune does favor the bold and you’ll never know what you’re capable of if you don’t try.”  -Sheryl Sandberg
