a done deal

Meaning: A done deal is an agreement or a decision that is final.

Saying of the week:

A little learning is a dangerous thing

Possible interpretation: It may be safer not to learn something at all than to half-learn it.

Note: This well known proverb originates from Alexander Pope′s "An Essay on Criticism":

A little Learning is a dang′rous Thing;
Drink deep, or taste not the Pierian Spring:
There shallow Draughts intoxicate the Brain,
And drinking largely sobers us again.

It is often stated as: "A little knowledge is a dangerous thing"
