WISECRACKER - BAVARD - CHIACCHIERONE - CORREVEIDILE
A little pepper burns a big man?s mouth.A little philosophy inclineth a man's mind to atheism, but depth in philosophy bringeth men's minds about to religion.
BaconA little pleases a poor man.A little poison makes much sweet bitter.A little pot boils easily.A little pot is easily hot.A little pot is soon hot.A little pot is soon hot.
ScotlandA little pot quickly boils.A little pot
soon hot.A little praise is good for a shy temper; it teaches it to rely on the kindness of others.
LandorA little rain each day will fill the rivers to overflowing.A little rain stills a great wind.A little rain will fill the lily's cup, which hardly moists the field.
Edwin ArnoldA little scandal is an excellent thing; nobody is ever brighter or happier of tongue than when he is making mischief of his neighbors.
OuidaA little sheep always seems young.A little ship needs but a little sail.A little shrub may grow into a tree.A little snow, tumbled about, anon becomes a mountain.
ShakespeareA little soul scarce fledged for earth
Takes wing with heaven again for goal,
Even while we hailed as fresh from birth
A little soul.
SwinburneA little spark can kindle a great fire.A little spark kindles a great fire.A little spark may cause a big fire.A little spark may kindle a great fire.A little spark shines in the dark.A little stone in the shoe may lame the pilgrim.A little stone in the way overturns a great wain.A little stone may upset a large cart.A little stone overturns a great cart.A little stream came tumbling from the height,
And struggling into ocean as it might.
Its bounding crystal frolick'd in the ray,
And gush'd from cliff to crag with saltless spray.
ByronA little stream drives a great mill.A little stream drives a light mill.A little stream may quench thirst as well as a great river.A little string will tie a little bird.A little subtleness is better than a lot of force.A little thing can ruin the whole thing.A little thing in hand is worth more than a great thing in prospect.A little thing often helps.A little thing will keep them from the house of God who have no desire to go to it.
AugheyA little thing will turn and divert us.
Michel De MontaigneA little time may be enough to hatch great mischief.A little too late is much too late.A little too wise, they say, do ne'er live long.A little truth helps the lie go down.A little truth makes the whole lie pass.A little venom bitters much sweet.A little wariness may save great weariness.A little wariness prevents great weariness.A little water is a sea to an ant.A little wind kindles, much puts out the fire.
