The idea that if you make too many concessions due to expense what you end up with will be useless anyway

@SW-User There's a lot of stuff from that period in history.
I wonder if that's because the written word was becoming more available to a wider audience ?
Or whether Shakespeare; Marlowe; Webster; Johnson et al was a seriously golden era for work produced at the time ?

When people treat you like they don't care, believe them.

"The hit dog will holler", which comes from the idea of tossing a pebble into a group of dogs, with the one that’s hit yelping.

Used to mean that the person becoming offended by a general statement is the one for whom it’s likely true.
