Page # : 14If you drink in your pottage you’ll cough in your grave.
If you give an inch, he will take an ell.
If you grease a cause well, it will stretch.
If you had fewer friends, and more enemies, you had been a better man.
If you have a loitering servant, place his dinner before him, and send him on an errand.
If you have no enemies, it is a sign fortune has forgotten you.
If you leap into a well, providence is not bound to fetch you out.
If you love not the noise of the bells, why pull the ropes?
If you make Bacchus your god, Apollo will not keep you company.
If you make not much of three pence, you’ll ne’er be worth a groat.
If you mock the lame, you will go so yourself in time.
If you oblige those who can never pay you, you make providence you debtor.
