Alec's explanation is precise and thorough. There are many different nuances for that expression that make it very difficult to explain it.

In any case, it's an expression that's hardly used in everyday's language. Frankly, I don't remember the last time I did, if ever. It's more often used in literature than in conversational language.

**Edit. I just caught myself using that expression, so forget about it not being used that often. I just did.. I'm sorry
