Excerpt from Gnomologia: Adages and Proverbs, Wise Sentences, and Witty Sayings; Ancient and Modern, Foreign and British 278 A man is a man, though he have'never a cap to his crown 279 A man is a stark fool all the while he's angry A man is not good or bad, for one action 281 A man is not so soon healed as hurt 282 A man in distress or despair does as much as ten A man in passion rides a horse that runs away with him A man knows his companion in a long journey and a little in'n A man like a watch, is to be valued for his goings A man loseth his time, that comes early to a bad bargain 287 A man may as well expect to be well, and at ease without wealth, as happy without virtue.
