I think cleave can be used solo for cut-- you can cleave your bonds, or cleave the fatted calf (root of cleaver, after all). "Cleave to" seems to be the preferred construction for attaching, however. I'm very curious how we got from one to the other, and which came first.

That which doesn't kill you weakens you slightly and makes you less able to cope until you're completely incapacitated
