vim and vigor

Enormous vitality and energy. This alliterative phrase is actually redundant. The noun vim is thought to come from the Latin vis, meaning strength and energy, and became American slang around the mid-1800s. Vigor, on the other hand, has meant energetic strength since the 1300s.

vim and vigor

Full of vitality and enthusiasm. Here's another redundant phase : “vim” comes from a Latin word for “stength,” while “vigor” means the same thing. But alliteration carries the day, so if you're full of vim and vigor, you're hot to trot and go to go. A similar expression is “piss 'n' vinegar,” the latter word having long been used to mean a sharp vitality.
