a wild goose never laid a tame egg
proverb Something will not be spontaneously different from that which came before. The phrase is used to describe things that are determined by nature and the environment, or else inherited from the generation before. We must never presume that humanity will be without violence; after all, a wild goose never laid a tame egg.
