Time trieth troth in every doubt.
To hold with the hare and run with the hound.

The neer to the church, the further from God.
She is nether fish nor flesh, nor good red herring.
She looketh as butter would not melt in her mouth.
Shee had seene far in a milstone.
Small pitchers have wyde eares.
So many heads so many wits.
