Thomas Tusser
A fool and his money are soon parted.
Tusser quotes
God sendeth and giveth both mouth and the meat.
'T is merry in hall
Where beards wag all.

Tusser Thomas quotes
HAST thou a Friend, as heart may wish at will?
Then use him so, to have his friendship still.
Would'st have a Friend, would'st know what friend is best?
Have God thy friend who passeth all the rest.
Tusser Thomas
Yet true it is, as cow chews cud
And trees at spring do yield forth bud,
Except wind stands as never it stood,
It is an ill wind turns none to good.
Thomas Tusser quotes
Dry sun, dry wind;
Safe bind, safe find. 5
Thomas Tusser
Such mistress, such Nan,
Such master, such man.
Tusser Thomas quotes
At Christmas play and make good cheer,
For Christmas comes but once a year.
Who goeth a borrowing
Goeth a sorrowing.
Tusser Thomas
[He] spread his bread with all sorts of butter, yet none would stick thereon.
Thomas Tusser
Naught venture naught have.

Thomas Tusser quotes
To death we must stoop, be we high, be we low,
But how and how suddenly few be that know -,
What carry we then but a sheet to the grave,
To cover this carcass, of all that we have?"
