Thomas Urquhart (Томас Эркарт)


Epigrams. The Third Booke. № 22. A Counsell to be provident, and circumspect in all our actions, without either cowardise, or temeritie


DOe nothing tim'rously, and yet b'aware,
You be not rash: let prudence therefore guard
Your words, and deeds; for he needs not to feare
What's to be shun'd, that shuns what's to be fear'd;
Nor in the present time be vex't, who from
Things past, discerne of what is like to come.
