1. Come hell o2r high water

makes clear that some future event will happen and no other event will stop it from happening. In spite of all obstacles, no matter what happens, whatever may come.
无论如何;不管什么事情发生。

come hell o2r high water就算天崩地裂…

这个短语的使用时机是当你要去执行一项任务或是做一件事之际,只许成功不许失败的决心。就犹如中文的“就算天崩地裂…”,比喻不论发生什么状况都要去完成使命。可以用在句首当作一句话的开头,或是放在句尾补述。

请看例句:

1) He is determined to finish the job come hell o2r high water.
他决心无论如何都要把工作完成。

2) I don't care what you think! We are going to finish this project come hell o2r high water.
