斗,

  When two tigers fight, one is sure to lose.

解释 ( paraphrase )
两只老虎打架,必定有一只要受伤。
这条谚语告诉我们:双方争斗,总有一方要受到损害。劝诫人们不要盲目地互相争斗,盲目争斗的结果,只有害处,没有好处。

This proverb warns us that conflict between two sides results in one of them getting hurt. So it is best to avoid fighting as much as possible.

斗 (dòu):争斗,打架。
                To fight, struggle.

同义词 ( synonym )
二虎相争,必有一伤
鹬蚌相争,渔翁得利

造句 ( example )
如果与谁都格格不入,不懂谦让,两虎相斗,必有一伤,这又何苦呢?与其受伤,还不如退一步,皆大欢喜。
