English term or phrase:Foaming Over It
It is a phrase that appears in "Beyond the Hundredth Meridian," Wallace Stegner’s biography of Powell:
“Losing one’s right arm is a misfortune; to some it would be a disaster, to others an excuse. It affected Wes Powell’s life about as much as a stone fallen into a swift stream affects the course of the river. With a velocity like his, he simply foamed over it.”
