    旧的不去,新的不来
    usually used to console someone who just has lose something
    the meaning is the new one won't come to you unless you lose the old one.

    it means "Keep the old,you get nothing new".
    or "If the old doesn't go, the new will not come.
    You can't make progress by clinging to old notions.
