Poem by Thomas Urquhart

Epigrams. The Third Booke. № 1. How to behave ones selfe in all occasions

NO kind of trouble to your selfe procure:
And shun as many crosses, as you can:
Stoutly support, what you must needs endure:
And with the resolution of a man,
Whose spirit is affliction-proofe, possesse
A joyfull heart in all occurrences.
