Give a Man Luck and throw him into the Sea; Money makes the Mare to go; Much falls between the Cup and the Lip.
Little Pitchers have great Ears; Many talk of Robin Hood who never shot in his Bow.
Need makes the old Wife trot; [woodcut: barefoot old woman hitches up skirts to cross a stream]
Better play at small Game than stand out; Give him a Rowland for his Oliver.
Give him a Rowland for his Oliver; Penny Wise, and Pound Foolish; He that Reckons without his Host must reckon again.

It’s neither Rhime nor Reason; What is got over the Devil’s Back will be spent under his Belly.
To buy a Pig in a poke; Robin Hood’s Pennyworths; He looks one way and rows another.
A Rolling Stone gathers no Moss; It is good to make Hay while the Sun shines.
Near is my Shirt, but Nearer is my Skin.
One Man had better steal a Horse than another look over the Hedge; [woodcut: highayman with hat and cape leads a horse]
He makes a Rod for his own Breech.
