Chassez le naturel…

Two more French phrases:

Chassez le naturel, il revient au galop :
Literally: Chase off what is natural and it comes galloping back:
The leopard cannot change its spots.

Pratiquer la politique de l’autruche :
Literally: To follow the strategy of the ostrich:
To bury one’s head in the sand.

Taken from: ‘Don’t Toss Granny in the Begonias: Faut pas Pousser Mémé dans les Bégonias’ by Marie-Hélène Claudel-Gilly and Primrose Arnander
