Is there any common English expression, idiom or proverb which implies:
Stop and accept a small loss, rather than continue and risk losing everything.
When someone is losing or possibly would lose so many things, we say:
You'd better be satisfied with losing one or two things (small amont) rather than losing everything.
P.S. the only equivalent that I found are as below:
- Better one house spoiled than two.
Although, I'm sure that they are some translations.
What would you say in natural English?
