Miguel de Cervantes/Quotes

Too much sanity may be madness and the maddest of all, to see life as it is and not as it should be.

Never stand begging for that which you have the power to earn.

Those who will play with cats must expect to be scratched.

To be prepared is half the victory.

Our greatest foes, and whom we must chiefly combat, are within.

Tell me thy company, and I'll tell thee what thou art.

Time ripens all things; no man is born wise.

The eyes those silent tongues of love.

Delay always breeds danger; and to protract a great design is often to ruin it.

Everyone is as God has made him, and oftentimes a great deal worse.

A single flower does not make Spring.

I'd say it usually takes a couple swallows if it's to be worth it? Sick

I usually swallow more than once, especially in summer.

The migration of such birds are staggered; they don't all arrive at once. Therefore some few will arrive early, before summer is in full swing. That was the way with the purple martins back in Arkansas. When they started showing up, my grandmother would take down the multiple holed nest from its pole in the back yard and clean it out before putting it back up. One time I remember there was a nest of house sparrows, or imported Weaver finches, and grandmother killed them. Those interlopers are pushing several species of birds to extinction by taking over their territories. I detest those birds to this day for that very reason.

The similar Italian proverb sounds: "Una sola rondine non fa primavera".

"One straw does not make my bed comfortable", I might have said being a poor peasant 700 hundred years ago.
