NOTE: For a fuller discussion on this quote read the Wikipedia entry regarding “For Want of a Nail…” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/For_want_of_a_nail. Earlier proverb, compare “For want of a nail the shoe is lost, for want of a shoe the horse is lost, for want of a horse the rider is lost.“ George Herbert, Jacula Prudentum (1651) No. 499
