Poem by Thomas Urquhart
Epigrams. The First Booke. № 42. The speech of a noble spirit to his adversary, whom af∣ter he had defeated, he acknowledgeth to be nothing in∣feriour to himselfe in worth, wit, or valour, thereby insinuating that a wise man cannot properly bee subdued: though he be orthrown in body, and worldly commodities
I Will not of this victory be glorious: Nor ought you for being vanquish'd to repine, You not being overcome: nor J victorious; Your fortune onely is o'rcome by mine; For by the force of judgment, grace, and will: You have a mind, that is invincible.
