Poem by Thomas Urquhart
Epigrams. The Second Booke. ¹ 16. Who is truly rich, and who poore
By the contempt, not value of the matter Of worldly goods, true riches are possess’d; For our desire by seeking groweth greater: And by desiring, povertie’s increass’d: So that on earth there can be none so poore As he, whose mind in plentie longs for more.
