What are phrases with "end" in them?

Asked by 6rant6 (13690points) April 16th, 2012

I’m working on a book title. I think it would be good if it had the word “end” in it, so I’m trying to think up common phrases that contain “end”:

“To no good end”
“No end in sight”
“The end of everything”

Like that.
What have you got?

The be all and end all.

Land’s End (that does have a ring, doesn’t it?)

Graham Greene already wrote a novel entitled The End of the Affair.

“All’s Well that Ends Well.”

at the end of my rope
at the end of the day
at wit’s end
end over end
burn the candle at both ends
a good beginning makes a good end
the thin end of the wedge
a light at the end of the tunnel
short end of the stick

It’ll all be all right in the end. It’s not all right yet, so this is not the end.
