WISDOMS

As telhas dum telhado encobrem muita miséria.

As tender as a chicken.

As tender as a parson's leman.

As tender as Parnell, that broke her finger in a posset-curd.

As that gallant can best affect a pretended passion for one woman who has no true love for another, so he that has no real esteem for any of the virtues can best assume the appearance of them all.
Colton

As the ancients wisely say
Have a care o' th' main chance,
And look before you ere you leap;
For as you sow y'are like to reap.
Butler

As the beggar knows his dish.

As the best wine makes the sharpest vinegar, so the deepest love turns to the deadliest hatred.

As the big hound is, so will the pup be.

As the blessings of health, and fortune have a beginning, so they must also find an end. Everything rises but to fall, and increases but to decay.
Sallust

As the blind man catcheth the hare.

As the blind man knows the cuckoo.

As the blind man shot the crow.

As the blush is the signal of innocence, so is serenity of manner the token of a quiet conscience.
Madame Necker

As the call, so the echo.

As the corn is, such will the walk be.

As the crow flies.

As the day lengthens, so the cold strengthens.

As the day lengthens, the cold strengthens.

As the dimensions of the tree are not always regulated by the size of the seed, so the consequences of things are not always proportionate to the apparent magnitude of those events that have produced them.
Colton

As the drunkard goes,
is known by his nose.

As the evening twilight fades away, the sky is filled with stars, invisible by day.
Longfellow

As the excitement of the game increases, prudence is sure to diminish.
Bulwer-Lytton

As the eye becomes blinded by fashion to positive deformity, so, through social conventionalism, the conscience becomes blinded to positive immorality.
Mrs. Jameson

As the falcon launched trustingly heavenward is lost to view, the course of the higher poetry often soars beyond the ken of the multitude; and, as the humble birds carol blithely round our dwellings, so the meeker lays of the muse linger tunefully about the heart.
Tuckerman

As the fertilest ground must be manured, so must the highest flying wit have a Dĉdalus to guide him.
Sir Philip Sidney

As the films of clay are removed from our eyes, Death loses the false aspect of the spectre, and we fall at last into its arms as a wearied child upon the bosom of its mother.
Bulwer-Lytton

As the flint contains the spark, unknown to itself, which the steel alone can awaken to life, so adversity often reveals to us hidden gems, which prosperity or negligence would forever have hidden.
H. W. Shaw

As the flower is before the fruit, so is faith before good works.
Whately

As the flowers follow the sun, and silently hold up their petals to be tinted and enlarged by its shining, so must we, if we would know the joy of God, hold our souls, wills, hearts, and minds, still before Him, whose voice commands, whose love warns, whose truth makes fair our whole being. God speaks for the most part in such silence only. If the soul be full of tumult and jangling voices, His voice is little likely to be heard.
Alexander Maclaren

As the fool sings,
So he thinks the bell rings.

As the fool thinks, the bell clinks.

As the fool thinks,
so the bell clinks.

As the Friday, so the Sunday:
as the Sunday, so the week.

As the good man saith, so say we: / As the good woman saith, so it must be.

As the goodman saith, so say we;
but as the good wife saith, so it must be.

As the gout seems privileged to attack the bodies of the wealthy, so ennui seems to exert a similar prerogative over their minds.
Colton

As the government is, such will be the man.
Plato

As the grace of man is in the mind, so the beauty of the mind is eloquence.
Cicero

As the grand discordant harmony of the celestial bodies may be explained by the simple principles of gravity and impulse, so also in that more wonderful and complicated microcosm, the heart of man, all the phenomena of morals are perhaps resolvable into one single principle, the pursuit of apparent good; for although customs universally vary, yet man in all climates and countries is essentially the same.
Colton

As the greatest liar tells more truths than falsehoods, so may it be said of the worst man, that he does more good than evil.
Johnson

As the Greek said, 'Many men know how to flatter, few men know how to praise.
Wendell Phillips

As the heart is, so is love to the heart. It partakes of its strength or weakness, its health or disease.
Longfellow

As the husband is, the wife is:
Thou art mated with a clown,
And the grossness of his nature
Will have weight to drag thee down.
Tennyson

As the husband is, the wife is; thou art mated with a clown.
Tennyson

As the index tells us the contents of stories and directs to the particular chapter, even so does the outward habit and superficial order of garments (in man or woman) give us a taste of the spirit, and demonstratively point (as it were a manual note from the margin) all the internal quality of the soul; and there cannot be a more evident, palpable, gross manifestation of poor, degenerate, dunghilly blood and breeding than a rude, unpolished, disordered, and slovenly outside.
Massinger

As the interest of man, so his God; as his God, so he.
Lavater

As the language of the face is universal, so is it very comprehensive. No laconism can reach it. It is the short-hand of the mind, and crowds a great deal in a little room. A man may look a sentence as soon as speak a word. The strokes are small, but so masterly drawn that you may easily collect the image and proportions of what they resemble.
Jeremy Collier

As the love of the heavens makes us heavenly, the love of virtue virtuous, so doth the love of the world make one become worldly.
Sir Philip Sidney

As the malicious disposition of mankind is too well known, and the cruel pleasure which they take in destroying the reputation of others, the use we are to make of this knowledge is, to afford no handle for reproach; for bad as the world is, it seldom falls on any one who hath not given some slight cause for censure.
Fielding
