Jean Ingelow. A Birthday Walk.A bisseleh chain iz shoin nit gemain (Yiddish)A bit and a knock, as men feed apes.A bit but and a bit ben maks a mim maiden at the board end.A bit in the morning is better than nothing all day, or than a thump on the back with a stone.A bit of fragrance always clings to the hand that gives you roses.A bite from a lion is better than the look of envy.A bite from a loving mouth is worth more than a kiss from any other.A bite in the morning is better than nothing all day.A bite is aften better gien than eaten.
