"Turn again Whittington" is a phrase from a popular English nursery rhyme called "Dick Whittington and His Cat." The rhyme tells the story of a young boy named Dick Whittington who goes to London to seek his fortune. Along the way, he is accompanied by his cat, who helps him overcome various obstacles.

The phrase "turn again Whittington" refers to the moment in the story when Dick, having become wealthy and successful, hears the bells of London calling him back. The phrase is often used as an expression of encouragement or a reminder to persevere in the face of adversity, with the implication that success and good fortune may be just around the corner.

The story of Dick Whittington is based on a real historical figure, Richard Whittington, who was a wealthy merchant and three-time Lord Mayor of London in the 14th century. The tale has been retold in various forms over the centuries, including as a pantomime and in numerous children's books.
