Never the Twain Shall Meet

Assyrian proverb, in Benjamin R. Foster, Before the Muses: An Anthology of Akkadian Literature, 3rd ed. (Bethesda: CDL Press, 2005), p. 431:
Flesh is flesh, blood is blood.
Alien is alien, foreigner is foreigner.
See also W.G. Lambert, Babylonian Wisdom Literature (Winona Lake: Eisenbrauns, 1996), p. 271.
