A Complete Collection of English Proverbs: Also, the Most Celebrated Proverbs of the Scotch, Italian, French, Spanish, and Other Languages (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from A Complete Collection of English Proverbs: Also, the Most Celebrated Proverbs of the Scotch, Italian, French, Spanish, and Other Languages
Some proverbs the reader may possibly find repeated, but I dare say not many, I know this might have been avoided by running over the whole book, and searching for the proverbs, one by one, in all the places where our method would admit them entry. But sloth and impatience of so tedious a work enticed me rather to presume upon memory; especially considering it was not worth while to he very solicitous about a matter of so small importance. In such papers as I received after the copy was out of my hands, when I was doubtful of any proverb I chose to let. It stand, resolving that it was better to repeat some than to omit any.
