Томас Эркарт (Thomas Urquhart)

Текст оригинала на английском языке

Epigrams. The First Booke. № 18. Not time, but our actions, are the true measure of our life

THat life is short, which measur'd by the span
Of time hath been of vertuous actions scant:
And one day's longer in a learned man,
Then twenty Lusters of an ignorant;
For life is good, and 'tis the quality
Of goodnesse, that extends its quantity.
