The Origin of Familiar Phrases. --The term "masterly inactivity" originated with Sir James Macintosh. "God tempers the wind to the shorn lamb," which everybody who did not suppose it was in the Bible credited to Sterne, was stolen by him from George Herbert, who translated it from the French of Henry Estienne. "The cup that cheers but not inebriates," was conveyed by Cower from Bishop Berkeley, in his "Siris." Wadsworth's "The child is father to the man," is traced from him to Milton, and from Milton to Sir Thomas Moore. "Like angels' visits, few and far between," is the offspring of Hook; it is not Thomas Campbell's original thought. Old John Norris (1658) originated it, and after him Robert Blair, as late as 1745. "There's a guide time coming" is Scott's phrase in "Rob Roy," and the "almighty dollar" is Washington living's happy thought.
