: The first plase I heard this phrase was in the movie "The Shining". At first I thougt it was a phrase made up for this movie, or the book. But When I saw "The Bridge On the River Kwai" the same phrase was used. Wher does it come from and what is the original meaning of thes phrase ?
It means that Jack needs a vacation or some free time once in a while to expand his horizons and feel better about himself and the world around him.
I have no idea where this came from and I am sure someone will post the origination.
