... I write for thisRemembering and considering what the pith is,That by remembrance of these proverbs may grow.In this tale, erst talked with a friend, I showAs many of them as we could fitly findFalling to purpose, that might fall in mind.

My Song, I fear that thou wilt find but few Who fitly shalt conceive thy reasoning, Of such hard matter dost thou entertain; Whence, if by misadventure, chance should bring Thee to base company (as chance may do), Quite unaware of what thou dost contain, I prithee, comfort thy sweet self again, My last delight! tell them that they are dull, And bid them own that thou art beautiful.Percy Bysshe Shelley
A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver.
They rejoice Each with their kind, lion with lioness, So fitly them in pairs thou hast combined.john milton
I know of no one in the realm who would not more fitly to come to me than I to him.
Favor and honor sometimes fall more fitly on those who do not desire them.
