Poem by Thomas Urquhart
Epigrams. The Second Booke. № 25. That vertue is of greater worth, then knowledge. to a speculative Philosopher
WHy doe you study Morals, if you take No paines t'abate your avarice, and lust? For how can vertues definition make You valiant, prudent, temperate, or just: Jf you industriously purge not your mind Of any vice, to which you are inclin'd?
