Thomas Urquhart (Томас Эркарт)


Epigrams. The Second Booke. № 29. A truely liberall man never bestoweth his gifts, in hope of recompence


A Hearty giver, will conceive such pleasure
In th'onely action of his good intent:
That though he be not met in the like measure,
It never breeds him any discontent;
For when he doth bestow a benefit,
He meerely lookes to the receivers profit.
