Ep Members Help Me Out Here...

so, i have a quote, or maybe it is a saying that i want you all to interpret and tell me what YOU think it means. it would help me out a lot.

the saying or quote is:

"every dog has his day".

i've looked up the origins and what have you, but the meaning is somewhat skewed by all the sites i have seen.

ideas or suggestions anyone?

Believe it or not, this phrase actually became popularized from Hamlet by William Shakespeare, although there are various forms of it that originated earlier.<br />
<br />
The full quote spoken by the title character in Act 5 is:<br />
"Let Hercules himself do what he may;<br />
the cat will mew and the dog will have his day."<br />
<br />
It means that a victim of a wrong will have his/her revenge. In the case of the play, Hamlet is saying that nothing can stop him now. He will finally get his revenge against his uncle.
