    To the man who only has a hammer, everything he encounters begins to look like a nail.

    "What does it mean?"

    If you hit anything with a hammer for long enough, it will be reduced to nothing.

    Linked to the saying "Using a sledgehammer to open a nut". If you use force, then whatever you tackle will be destroyed.
