A feverish display of over-zeal,
At the first outset, is an obstacle
To all success; water, however cold,
Will penetrate the ground by slow degrees.
A few books, well studied, and thoroughly digested, nourish the understanding more than hundreds but gargled in the mouth, as ordinary students use.
A few feet under the ground reigns so profound a silence, and yet so much tumult on the surface!
A few men are sufficient to broach falsehoods, which are afterwards innocently diffused by successive relaters.
A few persons of an odious and despised country could not have filled the world with believers, had they not shown undoubted credentials from the divine person who sent them on such a message.
A few seem favourites of fate,
In pleasure's lap caress'd;
Yet, think not all the rich and great
Are likewise truly blest.

A few words upon a tombstone, and the truth of those not to be depended on.
A few words worthy to be remembered suffice to give an idea of a great mind. There are single thoughts that contain the essence of a whole volume, single sentences that have the beauties of a large work, a simplicity so finished and so perfect that it equals in merit and in excellence a large and glorious composition.
A few years hence and he will be beneath the sod; but those cliffs will stand, as now, facing the ocean, incessantly lashed by its waves, yet unshaken, immovable; and other eyes will gaze on them for their brief day of life, and then they, too, will close.

A fiandeira laboriosa nunca faltou pano para camisas.
A fiar e a tecer, ganha a mulher de comer.
A fiction which is designed to inculcate an object wholly alien to the imagination sins against the first law of art; and if a writer of fiction narrow his scope to particulars so positive as polemical controversy in matters ecclesiastical, political or moral, his work may or may not be an able treatise, but it must be a very poor novel.
A fidelidade compra-se com a fidelidade.
A fidelidade é sempre suspeita, quando é comprada.
A field becomes exhausted by constant tillage.
A field of glory is a field for all.
A field requires three things; fair weather, sound seed, and a good husbandman.
A fiers chevaulx faut bailler rudes frains.
A fiery soul, which, working out its way,
Fretted the pygmy-body to decay,
And o'er-inform'd the tenement of clay.
A fig for Time! Use him well, and he's a hearty fellow.
A fig for your bill of fare; show me your bill of company.
