סדנא דארעא חד הוא
The foundation of the earth is one and the same. meaning: The nature of people is one and the same


Explanation:
סַדָּנָא דְּאַרְעָא חַד הוּא = גּוּף הַקַּרְקַע הוּא אֶחָד בְּכָל הַמְּקוֹמוֹת, מִנְהֲגֵי בְּנֵי-הָאָדָם דּוֹמִים הֵם בְּכָל מָקוֹם. סַדָּנָא = סַדָּן =תַּבְנִית מְסֻיֶּמֶת מֵעֵץ אוֹ מִמַּתֶּכֶת

זה לקוח ממסכת קידושין במשנה (כז)

An example:
כַּאֲשֶׁר נוֹדַע עַל כּומֶר שֶׁסָּרַח בְּאַרְצוֹת הַבְּרִית נִתְפַּרְסְמָה הַכּוֹתֶרֶת "סַדָּנָא דְּאַרְעָא חַד הוּא".

BTW - You have a tipo in the original

The core of the world is the one


Language variant: Indeed, there is a typo: should be סדנא

Explanation:
People are alike all over the world, or: The core of the world is the one. (Adding another site to the above).
