cliché: bad blood

Meaning: animosity between people (definition).

Example: A good fence often keeps bad blood between neighbors from escalating into a good war.

Origins: Blood and emotions; among first uses, Essays of Elia by Charles Lamb in 1823. (Source.)

  • foul blood
  • tainted blood
  • bile in the blood
  • vein hatred
  • ill tempered muscle
  • fury in the guts

Discussion: I have tried to rework both the concept of emotion and where that emotion resides.
