If you throw a rock into a pack of dogs the one that yelps is the one you hit. means if someone gets testy over something you said you probably hit a nerve in them with what you said, possibly tied into the next saying.
Can't spot it unless you've got it. Means it's easier to see the flaws in others that have in yourself.
