Thomas Urquhart (Томас Эркарт)


Epigrams. The Second Booke. № 42. The deserved mutability in the condition of too ambitious men


AS is the Tortoise used by the Eagle:
So fortune doth vaine-glorious men inveagle;
Who carries them upon the wings of honour
The higher up, that they may breake the sooner.
