: : Does anyone know the meaning or origin behind the phrase "everything that rises"?
: : Thank you.
: I haven't heard it used in a context that would suggest it has a special meaning. The closest thing I know of is the saying "What goes up must come down."
Or the more cryptic recent (?) arrival :
"What goes round comes round" !
