At the best, sarcasms, bitter irony, scathing wit, are a sort of sword-play of the mind. You pink your adversary, and he is forthwith dead; and then you deserve to be hung for it.
At the bottom of a good deal of the bravery that appears in the world there lurks a miserable cowardice. Men will face powder and steel because they cannot face public opinion.
At the bottom there is no perfect history; there is none such conceivable. All past centuries have rotted down, and gone confusedly dumb and quiet.
At the close of the day when the hamlet is still,
And mortals the sweets of forgetfulness prove,
When naught but the torrent is heard on the hill,
And naught but the nightingale's song in the grove.
BEATTIE: The Hermit.
At the door of the fold, words; within the fold, an account.
At the end I might put my winning in my eye and see never the worse.
At the end of life thoughts hitherto impossible come to the collected mind, like good spirits which let themselves down from the shining heights of the past.
At the end of the game, the king and the pawn go into the same bag.
At the end of the work you may judge of the workman.
At the first hand buy,
at the third let lie.
At the first opportunity.
At the games end we shall see who gaines.
George Herbert, Jacula Prudentum
At the game's end we shall see who gains.
At the game's end, we shall see who gains.
At the last, when we die, we have the dear angels for our escort on the way. They who can grasp the whole world in their hands can surely also guard our souls, that they make that last journey safely.
At the least bear patiently, if thou canst not joyfully.
Thomas à Kempis
At the morning hour, when the half-awakened sun, trampling down the lingering shadows of the west, spreads his ruby-tinted tresses over jessamines and roses, drying with cloths of gold Aurora's tears of mingled fire and snow, which the sun's rays converted into pearls.
At the most, but patch you up, and prop you a little.
Michel De Montaigne
At the point of the pen is the focus of the mind.
J. L. Basford
At the slightest provocation.
At the throng'd levee bends the venal tribe:
With fair but faithless smiles each varnish'd o'er,
Each smooth as those that mutually deceive.
At the time we were funding our national debt, we heard much about 'a public debt being a public blessing,' that the stock representing it was a creation of active capital for the ailment of commerce, manufactures and agriculture.
At the time when that odious style which deforms the writings of Hall and of Lord Bacon was almost universal, had appeared that stupendous work, the English Bible, - a book which, if everything else in our language should perish, would alone suffice to show the whole extent of its beauty and power.
At the Westgate came Thornton in,
with a hop, a halfpenny, and a lambskin.
At the workingman's house, hunger looks in, but dares not enter.
At thirty man suspects himself a fool;
Knows it at forty, and reforms his plan;
At fifty chides his infamous delay,
Pushes his prudent purpose to resolve,
Resolves - and re-resolves; then dies the same.
At times truth may not seem probable.
At tu mihi da pacis unam guttulam.
At twenty every one is republican.
At ubi venit plenitudo temporis misit Deus Filium suum factum ex muliere, factum sub lege.
At vende det graa ud.
At vindicta bonum vita iucundius ipsa.
At whose sight all the stars
Hide their diminished heads.
At your age,
The hey-day in the blood is tame, it's humble,
And waits upon the judgment.
Ata o burro onde te manda o dono.
Atar e pôr ao fumeiro, como o chouriço da preta.
Até a consumação dos séculos.
Até a coruja acha os filhos bonitos.
Até a formiga quer companhia.
Até a morte, pé forte.
Até a ressurreição dos capuchos.
Até aí morreu o Neves, afogado em cuspe.
Até aí morreu o Neves, enforcado num pé de couve.
Até aí morreu o Neves.
Até aí, santo Agostinho.
Até ao dar da mão há arrependão.
Até ao lavar dos cestos é vindima.
Até aos quarenta bem eu passo; dos quarenta em diante, ai a minha perna, ai o meu braço.
Até aos vinte, evita a mulher; depois dos quarenta, foge dela.
Até as pedras se encontram, quanto mais as criaturas.
