James Wood, comp.  Dictionary of Quotations.  1899.
R. Southwell
  Few have all they need, none all they wish.  1
  He that high growth on cedars did bestow, / Gave also lowly mushrooms leave to grow.  2
  In some things all, in all things none, are crossed.  3
  Pikes are caught when little fish go by.  4
  That net that holds no great, takes little fish.  5
  The loom of Fortune weaves the fine and coarsest web.  6
  We trample grass, and prize the flowers of May; / Yet grass is green when flowers do fade away.  7
  When sun is set the little stars will shine.  8
