To leave no stone unturned - English Vocabulary Lesson # 114 - Free English speaking lesson

When you are determined to achieve something, you go all out of your way to make sure that you achieve it. The idiom 'leave no stone unturned' basically means to make every possible effort to accomplish something.
You use every source or resource and try every course of action to get what you want.
You look everywhere, turn over every rock to get what you want by doing everything in your power.

For example, if are going to a fancy dress competition, you go around looking for the best possible costume to suit the character you are dressing as, buy the best accessories and hire the best make-up artist in your town. You have a dress rehearsal before the competition. This means, you do everything to win the competition. So, you leave no stone unturned.
