Poem by Thomas Urquhart
Epigrams. The Third Booke. № 16. That the most of our contentment, while we are upon the earth, consisteth rather in Negatives, as not to be perplexed with ment all perturbations, outward diseases, and other such like life-tormen∣ting crosses, then in the reall fruition of any positive delight, that can befall vs
THere being no possibility, that men Can here enjoy a greater delectation, Then to possesse a body without paine, And mind untroubled by the meanest passion: Without desire of further pleasure, health, And a good conscience should be our chiefe wealth.
