Set a beggar on horseback and he will ride a gallop.

Many things happen between the cup and the lip.
Birds of a feather will gather together.
They lard their lean books with the fat of others' works.
Carcasses bleed at the sight of the murderer.
Can build castles in the air.
Who cannot give good counsel? T'is cheap, it costs them nothing.
Almost in every kingdom the most ancient families have been at first princes' bastards; their worthiest captains, best wits, greatest scholars, bravest spirits in all our annals, have been base [born].
