English expressions like ‘Everything happens for a reason’ sound hokey to some, but not if you believe in fate or destiny. Pediatrician Dr. Michael Shannon says, “Things are supposed to happen when they do. I see examples of this almost daily in my life and practice.” In 2011, Dr. Shannon was driving down a coastal highway in California when he was hit by a truck. He was trapped in his vehicle as it caught fire.
‘Love at first sight’ is an English expression that means to fall in love with someone instantly after just looking at him or her for the first time. Whether you believe this is real love or just shallow desire, it’s a familiar scene in today’s books, movies, and television shows.
