As rich as a new-shorn sheep.
As rich as Damer.
As riches and favor forsake a man, we discover him to be a fool, but nobody could find it out in his prosperity.
As right as a ram's horn.
As right as my leg.
As riquezas têm asas; as dívidas têm garras.
As rivers, when they overflow, drown those grounds, and ruin those husbandmen, which, whilst they flowed calmly betwixt their banks, they fertilized and enriched; so our passions, when they grow exorbitant and unruly, destroy those virtues, to which they may be very serviceable whilst they keep within their bounds.
Às romarias e às bodas vão as loucas todas.
Às romarias e às bodas vão as sandias todas.
As rosas caem, e os espinhos ficam.
As rough as a tinker's budget.
As round as a Pontypool waiter.
As round as an adder asleep in the sunshine.
As Rubens by one stroke converted a laughing into a crying child, so nature frequently makes this stroke in the original; a child's eye, like the sun, never draws water so readily as in the hot temperature of pleasure.
As safe as a crow in the gutter.
As safe as a mouse in a malt heap.
As safe as a mouse in a mill.
As safe as a thief in a mill.
As safe as treasure in a kist,
Is the day in an old moon's mist.
As sapless as a kix.
As saudades são filhas do amor e enteadas do engano.
As scabbed as a cuckoo.
As scarce as truth is, the supply has always been in excess of the demand.
H. W. Shaw
As sedas e os veludos, às vezes, apagam o fogo da cozinha.
As sharp as a razor.
As sharp as a thorn.
As sharp as if he lived on Tewkesbury mustard.
As sharp as vinegar.
As ships meet at sea a moment together, when words of greeting must be spoken, and then away upon the deep, so men meet in this world; and I think we should cross no man's path without hailing him, and if he needs giving him supplies.
As shortly as a horse will lick his ear.
As sib as a sieve to a riddle.
As sick as a cat
with eating a rat.
As sick as a cushion.
As sick as a dog.
As sick as a horse.
As sight is in the eye, so is the mind in the soul!
As sins proceed they ever multiply, and like figures in arithmetic, the last stands for more than all that wept before it.
Sir Thomas Browne
As sleepy as an October wasp.
As slender in the middle as a cow in the waist.
As slippery as an eel.
As sloth seldom bringeth actions to good birth; so hasty rashness always makes them abortive ere well formed.
As small as herbs to the pot.
As small letters hurt the sight, so do small matters him that is too much intent upon them; they vex and stir up anger, which begets an evil habit in him in reference to greater affairs.
As smooth as a carpet.
As snug as a bug in a rug.
As snug as a pig in pea-straw.
As society advances the standard of poverty rises.
As soft as silk.
As soft wax is apt to take the stamp of the seal, so are the minds of young children to receive the instruction imprinted on them.
As softly as foot can fall.
