Robert Christy, comp. Proverbs, Maxims and Phrases of All Ages. 1887.


A wink is as good as a nod to a blind man.

He that winketh with one eye and seeth with the other,
I would not trust him though he were my brother.

Who would regard all things complacently must wink at a great many.Dutch.

Wink at wee faults, your ain are meikle.
