Killing
 
Any one can kill a bound foe.  Turkish.  1
He kills a man that saves not his life when he can.  Danish.  2
Kill a man’s family and he may brook it,
But keep your hand out of his breeches pocket.  Byron.
  3
Kill and thou wilt be killed and he will be killed who kills thee.  Spanish.  4
Kill no more than you can salt or you will have tainted meat.  Danish.  5
Kill the lion’s whelp; thou’lt strive in vain when he’s grown.  6
