whatever man has done, man may do

There is a similar idea behind 1723 S. CRANSTON in G. S. Kimball Correspondence of Colonial Governors of Rhode Island (1902) I.9 But as the Proverb is what hath been may be againe.

1863 C. READE Hard Cash II. xiv. ‘Dark Deeds are written in an unknown tongue called “Lawyerish”..; pick it out if you can.’ ‘Whatever man has done man may do,’ said Dr. Sampson stoutly.

1910 ‘SAKI’ Reginald in Russia 14 I fell in love..with the local doctor’s wife... On looking back at past events it seems to me that she must have been distinctly ordinary, but I suppose the doctor had fallen in love with her once, and what man has done man can do.
