The clash of ideas brings forth the spark of truth. Blood is thicker than water. One man’s meat is another man’s poison. Australia – land of tomorrow. Once bitten, twice shy. Half a loaf is better than none. In the planting season visitors come singly, and in harvest time they come in crowds. Dog must not steal from dog. A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. If you catch a man, throw him back!
