Daily Chinese Proverb: Bridges

Posted by Charlie @ Discovering Mandarin Tuesday, 15 September 2009
This Chinese proverb is used to describe someone who does something and then prevents others doing it too. In other words someone who is quite a selfish person. This is quite different to the English proverb 'Burning Bridges' though which is more to do with purposefully loosing contact with a person.

guò hé chāi qiáo
Cross River, Tear Down Bridge
