Boat
 
Light boats sail swift, though greater bulks draw deep.  Shakespeare.  1
Little boats must keep the shore, large ships may venture more.  2
Old as is the boat it may cross the ferry.  Spanish.  3
Say what we will, do what we will, the boat goes but sorrily without oars.  Italian.  4
Vessels large may venture more,
But little boats should keep near shore.
