less is more = weniger ist mehr he is familiar with s.th. = er ist vertraut mit etwas You can look up the second on Pons (dictionary), 2nd meaning: http://de.pons.com/%C3%BCbersetzung?q=familiar&l=deen&in=&lf=de You can find the first one on linguee, though you have to look a bit, as many translations keep it as a slogan: http://www.linguee.de/deutsch-englisch/search?source=auto&query=less+more I don't know what the third one is supposed to mean in English, can you give some context?

"Fire back up fire" is like your own poison that you use to kill the others kills you. Wer andern eine Grube gräbt, fällt selbst hinein.
