: is anyone familiar with (and the meaning of) a phrase similar to:
: bitter water and fresh water do not come from the same source

♥ I'm inclined to believe that this is neither a catch-phrase nor an adage. It is, however, a truism. The author may be simply describing a situation in which there are two sources of water, probably two wells or springs, in which the water in one is fresh or soft, the water in the other hard and alkaline.
