Page 206 - Spanish proverb be true, that a fool knows more in his own house than a wise man in another's.
Page 28 - I'll tell you, friend! a wise man and a fool. You'll find, if once the monarch acts the monk, Or, cobbler-like, the parson will be drunk, Worth makes the man, and want of it, the fellow; The rest is all but leather or prunella.
