Grocott & Ward, comps.  Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed.  189-?.
 
Compare
 
So I had known whelps like dogs, so kids like their dams: thus I was wont to compare great things with small.
        Davidson’s Virgil, by Buckley, Page 2.
  1
So, if great things to small may be compar’d,
Xerxes, the liberty of Greece to yoke,
From Susa, his Memnonian palace high,
Came to the sea; and, over Hellespont
Bridging his way, Europe with Asia joined,
And scourged with many a stroke the indignant waves.
        Milton.—Par. Lost, Book X.
  2
If I may be allowed to compare little matters with great ones, Anapis also loved me.
        Riley’s Ovid.—Meta., Page 174.
