Paraphrasing a Famous Saying Expression "Even a worm will turn".
"Even a worm will turn" is an expression used to convey the message that even the meekest or most docile of creatures will retaliate or seek revenge if pushed too far.
The phrase was first recorded in a 1546 collection of proverbs by John Heywood, in the form "Treade a worme on the tayle, and it must turne agayne."
It was used in William Shakespeare's play Henry VI, Part 3. In the play, the phrase is uttered by Lord Clifford, killer of Rutland as, "To whom do lions cast their gentle looks? Not to the beast that would usurp their den. The smallest worm will turn being trodden on, And doves will peck in safeguard of their brood."
