dhu ʾlhijja quotes- 5 of
And he was redy with his iren hoot,
And Nicholas amidde the ers he smoot:
For a man wins nothing better than a good wife, and then again nothing deadlier than a bad one.
Come as the winds come, when
Forests are rended,
Come as the waves come, when
Navies are stranded:
Come away, come away,
Hark to the summons!
Come in your war-array,
Gentles and commons.
If you were to offer a thirsty man all wisdom, you would not please him more than if you gave him a drink.
