Thus when a barber and collier fight,
  The barber beats the luckless collier--white;
    The dusty collier heaves his ponderous sack,
      And, big with vengeance, beats the barber--black.
        In comes the brick-dust man, with grime o'er spread,
          And beats the collier and the barber--red;
            Black, red, and white, in various clouds are toss'd,
              And in the dust they raise the combatants are lost.
      - Christopher Smart, A Trip to Cambridge,
        soliloquy of the Princess Periwinkle

In excessive altercation, truth is lost.
  [Lat., Nimium altercando veritas amittitur.]
      - Syrus (Publilius Syrus), Maxims
