JOHN TAYLOR ("THE WATER POET")
English poet
(1580 - 1654)

The woman, Spaniel, the walnut tree.
  The more you beat them the better they be.
      - from an early song [Punishment]

By wondrous accident perchance one may
  Grope out a needle in a load of hay;
    And though a white crow be exceedingly rare,
      A blind man may, by fortune, catch a hare.
      - A Kicksey Winsey (pt. VII) [Fortune]

Better fed than taught.
      - Jack a Lent, French proverb
        [Proverbs : Teaching]

An old man is twice a child.
      - The Old, Old, Very Old Man [Age]

He held it safer to be of the religion of the King or Queen that were in being, for he knew that he came raw into the world, and accounted it no point of wisdom to be broiled out of it.
      - The Old, Old, Very Old Man, (Parr.)
        [Patriotism]

Laugh and be fat.
      - Title of a Tract [Laughter]

'Tis a mad world (my masters) and in sadness
  I travail'd madly in these dayes of madness.
      - Wandering to see the Wonders of the West
        [Traveling]

A mad world, my maters.
      - Western Voyage (first line) [World]

God sends meat, and the Devil sends cooks.
      - Works (vol. II, p. 85) [Cookery : Proverbs]
