Is there any idiom / expression in English which can imply the situation in which someone due to some bad happenings suddenly and quickly plummets from the height of success and glory to the depth of wretchidness?
In my language, there is a proverb which says the same thing usually when someone loses their prior dignity and fame or when they go bankrupt in a short period of time!
Some English equivalents that I have found in translation pages are as below:
- He raged to riches.
- He came from somebody to nobody.
- He came from hero to zero.
I don't know if they work in this sense of natural English! If they do, please let me know; if they don't please tell me the current expression, idiom or proverb which you use in this situation.
