Mark my words

Origin of Phrases - M

 

Mark my words

Meaning: I will be proven correct.

 

Example: Mark my words, if you don't replace you tires you will have a blow out on your car by the end of the summer.

 

Origin: "Mark" in this case means to write, hence "mark my words" means to write down my words. This will enable the written words to be referenced later, presumably proving the speaker correct.
