Epigrams. The First Booke. ¹ 10. Why the world is at variance

Each man hath his owne sense, and apprehension, 
	And faith wherein he lives: but from this ill, 
That each hath his owne will, springs all dissension; 
	For that all men agree, their lackes but will: 
Warres never raging in so shrewd a cace: 
But that, if men were pleas’d, would turne to peace.
