C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
        All things on earth thus change, some up, some down;
Content’s a kingdom, and I wear that crown.
        Be of comfort, and your heavy sorrow
Part equally among us; storms divided,
Abate their force, and with less rage are guided.
        He makes a beggar first that first relieves him;
Not us’rers make more beggars where they live
Than charitable men that use to give.
        These are the lords
That have bought titles: men may merchandise
Wares, ay and traffic in all commodities
From sea to sea, and from shore to shore:
But in my thought, of all things that are sold.
’Tis pity honor should be bought for gold:
It cuts off all desert.
  At our wittes end.  5
  By hooke or crooke.  6
  God never sendeth mouth but he sendeth meat.  7
  Have yee him on the hip?  8
  Nought venter nought have.  9
  Robbe Peter and pay Paule.  10
  Rome was not built in one day.  11
  Set the cart before the horse.  12
  Tell tales out of schoole.  13
  The fat is in the fire.  14
  The more the merrier.  15
  Two heads are better than one.  16
  Went in at the one eare and out at the other.  17
