drive/hammer something home
to say something very clearly and with a lot of force, often repeating it several times, so that you are sure that people understand it. She used charts and statistics to drive home her message that we need to economize.

要注意的是后面接的是”something“,不是"someone"
Here are my understanding:
把事情说到头了
把事情说到这个份上了
把事情说道最大程度了


She used charts and statistics to drive home her message that we need to economize.
她用表格和统计将人们需要节约的观点交待得彻彻底底。

“Death is a friend of ours; and he that is not ready to entertain him is not at home.”

我的理解:
        死亡是我们的一个朋友;他没有准备款待自己,他不在家。

不解之处:
         后半句 ...


死亡是我们的朋友,没准备好接待他的人不会很舒心。

feel at home, 是个短语,意思是感觉象在家一样,自在。
not at home, 不自在,不舒服

没有准备招待他的人将不会被邀请。
