To give birth in French = poetic expressions

4 years ago
Bonjour tout le monde,

One of my favorite expression in French is the one we use to say "to give birth", we say
"mettre au monde"
Literally, it means "to put to the world", exemple = ma femme a mis nos deux enfants au monde

We also say :
"donner la vie"
Which means to "give the life", exemple = les femmes ont le pouvoir de donner la vie.

Sometimes we use words or sentences without noticing how poetic they are because we don't always pay attention to the beauty of our mother tongue ! What about your language? Could you share with us the most beautiful expressions you use on your everyday life?
