“A bridge too far” is an unrealistic, impossible goal. Sometimes we try to do things that just aren’t possible. Even if we make a good effort, there was no way to succeed in the first place. We can use this phrase to discourage someone from setting an impossible goal, or to explain that a goal was too ambitious. It comes from a failed mission in WWII.
