There is a proverbial sentence in our culture which says:
- Every obstacle is often on the way of (the weakest / the most poore etc.) people. (literal translation)
Connotation: it means usually all the problems / the biggest problems happen to those who are suffering from many other difficulties!
Some founded expressions which seem to be able to make an acceptable sense, but probabely uncommon or old-fashioned is:
- The weakest go to the wall.
The other expression is:
- Flies go to the leant hourses. [it is like a translation from another language.]
I'd like to know how would you convey this message through a fixed expreasion or proverbial statement?
