Proverbs:
> Like the blow at Utaor, one stroke for all
A person or perhaps a club of the hamlet of Utaor (a hamlet of either Koror or Chol) offended a major village and, in consequence, the village retaliated by attacking the whole hamlet. The idiom applies to any general statement or punishment that might better be directed toward a particular group or individual
> It's like the birth of a rat with one offspring per mother.
It's something that happens just once, something I put up with only once.
> Like the breadfruit of Kayangel, just one rotten piece will spoil the whole bunch.
One bad person can ruin the reputation of a whole group.
> A blind man leading another blind man.
The application is identical to that of the familiar English idiom
More Examples:
> I'm borrowing money not less than a thousand dollars.
> I only wish that we will see each other in the future.
> I'll be in Palau for only one week
> Im going to harvest one of my taro square. It is now big harvest season time.
> Teach your child to respect themselves so that they can respect others.
