Spinning
 
It is better to spin all night with Penelope than sing all night with Helen.  1
She that gazes much spins not much.  2
Spinner, spin softly, you disturb me, I am praying.  Portuguese.  3
Spin not too fine a thread lest it break in weaving up.  4
That which will not be spun let it not come between the spindle and the distaff.  5
You must spoil before you spin.  6
