Thomas Urquhart (Томас Эркарт)


Epigrams. The Third Booke. № 34. It is the safest course to entertaine poverty in our greatest riches


YOur thoughts in greatest plentie moderate,
Lest with superfluous things you be insnared:
Let poverty be your familiar Mate,
That Fortune may not find you unprepared;
For so it will not lye into her pow'r,
T'inflict that crosse, which you cannot endure.
