WISDOMS

All the speed is in the spurs.

All the strength and force of man comes from his faith in things unseen. He who believes is strong; he who doubts is weak. Strong conviction precede great actions. The man strongly possessed of an idea is the master of all who are uncertain or wavering. Clear, deep, living convictions rule the world.
James Freeman Clarke

All the tears that St. Swithin can cry,
St. Bartholomew's dusty mantle wipes dry.

All the tree-tops lay asleep, like green waves on the sea.
Shelley

All the virtues which appeared in Christ shone brightest in the close of His life, under the trials He then met. Eminent virtue always shows brightest in the fire. Pure gold shows its purity chiefly in the furnace. It was chiefly under those trials which Christ endured in the close of His life that His love to God, His honor of God's majesty, His regard to the honor of His law, His spirit of obedience, His humility, contempt of the world, His patience, meekness, and spirit of forgiveness towards men, appeared. Indeed, everything that Christ did to work out redemption for us appears mainly in the close of His life. Here mainly is His satisfaction for sin, and here chiefly is His merit of eternal life for sinners, and here chiefly appears the brightness of His example which He has set us for imitation.
Jonathan Edwards

All the walks of literature are infested with mendicants for fame, who attempt to excite our interest by exhibiting all the distortions of their intellects and stripping the covering from all the putrid sores of their feelings.
Macaulay

All the water in the sea cannot wash out this stain.

All the while thou livest ill, thou hast the trouble, distraction, inconveniences of life, but not the sweets and true use of it.
Thomas Fuller

All the wit in the world is not in one head.

All the women in the world would not make me lose an hour.
Napoleon

All the world and Bingham.

All the world and his wife.

All the world and Little Billing.

All the world is not oatmeat.

All the world is not wise conduct and stratagem.

All the world is on the tip of the tongue.
Yiddish] Di gantse velt shteyt oyf der shpits tsung.

All the world practices the art of acting.
Petronius Arbiter

All the world says of a coxcomb that he is a coxcomb; but no one dares to say so to his face, and he dies without knowing it.
La Bruyère

All the world will beat the man whom fortune buffets.

All the world, all that we are, and all that we have, our bodies and our souls, our actions and our sufferings, our conditions at home, our accidents abroad, our many sins, and our seldom virtues, are as so many arguments to make our souls dwell low in the valley of humility.
Jeremy Taylor

All the world's a stage and most of us are desperately unrehearsed.

All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players.
Shakespeare

All the world's a stage,
And all the men and women merely players:
They have their exits and their entrances;
And one man in his time plays many parts.
Shakespeare

All the world's bravery that delights our eyes is but thy several liveries.
Cowley

All these inconveniences are incidents to love: reproaches, jealousies, quarrels, reconcilements, war, and then peace.
Terence

All these you may avoid but the Lie Direct; and you may avoid that too, with an If. I knew when seven justices could not take up a quarrel, but when the parties were met themselves, one of them thought but of an If, as 'If you said so, then I said so;' and they shook hands and swore brothers. Your If is the only peace-maker; much virtue in If.
Shakespeare

All they that take the sword shall perish with the sword.
Bible, Matthew (ch. XXVI, v. 52)

All thing is the woorse for the wearing.
John Heywood, (1497??1580?), Proverbes. Part ii. Chap. i.

All things are admired either because they are new or because they are great.
Bacon

All things are artificial, for nature is the art of God.
Sir Thomas Browne

All things are difficult before they are easy.

All things are double, one against another. Good is set against evil, and life against death; so is the godly against the sinner, and the sinner against the godly. Look upon all the works of the Most High, and there are two and two, one against another.
Bible

All things are easy that are done willingly.

All things are engaged in writing their history. The planet, the pebble, goes attended by its shadow. The rolling rock leaves its scratches on the mountain; the river, its channel in the soil; the animal, its bones in the stratum; the fern and leaf, their modest epitaph in the coal. The falling drop makes its sculpture in the sand or the stone. Not a foot steps into the snow or along the ground, but prints, in characters more or less lasting, a map of its march. Every act of the man inscribes itself in the memories of its fellows, and in his own manners and face. The air is full of sounds, the sky of tokens, the ground is all memoranda and signatures, and every object covered over with hints which speak to the intelligent.
Emerson

All things are in fate, yet all things are not decreed by fate.
Plato

All things are in perpetual flux and fleeting.

All things are less dreadful than they seem.

All things are literally better, lovelier, and more beloved for the imperfections which have been divinely appointed, that the law of human life may be Effort, and the law of human judgment Mercy.
Ruskin

All things are not to be granted at all times.

All things are obedient to money.

All things are possible with God.

All things are ready, if our minds be so.
Shakespeare: Henry V., Act iv., Sc. 3.

All things are soon prepared in a well-ordered house.

All things are symbols: the external shows
Of Nature have their image in the mind,
As flowers and fruits and falling of the leaves.
Longfellow

All things ares obedient to money. / A gold key opens all doors.

All things but one you can restore; the heart you get returns no more.
Waller

All things can corrupt perverse minds.
Ovid

All things change, and we change with them.

All things come to those that/who wait.

All things decay with time; the forest sees
The growth and downfall of her aged trees:
That timber tall, which threescore lustres stood
The proud dictator of the state-like wood -
I mean the sov'reign of all plants, the oak,
Droops, dies, and falls without the cleaver's stroke.
Herrick
