All his fingers are thumbs.
All his geese are swans.
All his mind is bent to holiness,
To number Ave-Maries on his beads.
All his teeth should fall out except one to make him suffer.
Yiddish] Ale tseyn zoln bay im aroysfaln, not eyner zol im blaybn oyf tsonveytung.
All history is the decline of war, though the slow decline. All that society has yet gained is mitigation; the doctrine of the right of war still remains.
All history was at first oral.
All holidays at Peckham.
All hope abandon, ye who enter here.
All hope is lost of my reception into grace; what worse? For where no hope is left, is left no fear.
All human history attests
That happiness for man - the hungry sinner -
Since Eve ate apples, much depends on dinner!
All human misfortunes have to be put up with.
Cicero, Ad Atticum, 12,11
All human power is but comparative.
All human souls, never so bedarkened, love light; light once kindled, spreads till all is luminous.
All human things hang on a slender thread: the strongest fall with a sudden crash.
All' huomo vecchio per tutto gli duole.
All I aim at is, to pass my time at my ease.
Michel De Montaigne
All I desire is, that my poverty may not be a burden to myself, or make me so to others; and that is the best state of fortune that is neither directly necessitous nor far from it. A mediocrity of fortune, with gentleness of mind, will preserve us from fear or envy; which is a desirable condition; for no man wants power to do mischief.
All I have seen teaches me to trust the Creator for all I have not seen.
All I say is by way of discourse, and nothing by way of advice.
Michel De Montaigne
All Ilchester is gaol.
All ills spring from some vice, either in ourselves or others; and even many of our diseases proceed from the same origin. Remove the vices, and the ills follow. You must only take care to remove all the vices. If you remove part, you may render the matter worse. By banishing vicious luxury, without curing sloth and an indifference to others, you only diminish industry in the state, and add nothing to men's charity or their generosity.
All impediments in fancy's course are motives of more fancy.
All in a corpse.
All in good time.
All in one (person) is to be found in no one.
Yiddish] Alles in einem is nisht do bei keine.
All in the wild March-morning I heard the angels call;
It was when the moon was setting, and the dark was over all;
The trees began to whisper, and the wind began to roll,
And in the wild March-morning I heard them call my soul.
All inconsiderate enterprises are impetuous at first, but soon languish.
All is but lip wisdom which wants experience.
Sir Philip Sidney
All is but toys.
William Shakespeare (1564-1616), Macbeth (Macbeth)
All is confounded, all!
Reproach and everlasting shame
Sits mocking in our plumes.
All is fair at Horn Fair.
All is fair in election time.
All is fair in love and war.
All is fine that is fit.
All is fish that comes to the net.
All is fish that comth to net.
John Heywood, (1497??1580?), Proverbes. Part i. Chap. xi.
All is gay that is green.
All is gentle; nought
Stirs rudely; but congenial with the night,
Whatever walks is gliding like a spirit.
All is good in a famine.
All is good that God sends us.
All is grist that comes to the mill.
All is holy where devotion kneels.
All is lost that is poured into a riven dish.
All is lost: both labour and cost.
All is mystery; but he is a slave who will not struggle to penetrate the dark veil.
All is not at hand that helps.
All is not butter that comes from the cow.
All is not butter the cow shits.
All is not false that seems at first a lie.
All is not gold that glisters.
George Herbert, Jacula Prudentum
