Thomas Moore published a volume of amatory poems in 1808, under
the name of Thomas Little.
“When first I came my proper name was Little- now I'm Moore.”
Hood: The Wee Man.
Little by little. Gradually; a little at a time.
Many a little makes a mickle.
The real Scotch proverb is: “A wheen o' mickles mak's a muckle,” where mickle means little, ad muckle much; but the
Anglo-Saxon micel or mycel means “much,” so that, if the
Scotch proverb is accepted, we must give a forced meaning to the word “mickle.”
