Epigrams. The Third Booke. ¹ 34. It is the safest course to entertaine poverty in our greatest riches
YOur thoughts in greatest plentie moderate, Lest with superfluous things you be insnared: Let poverty be your familiar Mate, That Fortune may not find you unprepared; For so it will not lye into her pow'r, T'inflict that crosse, which you cannot endure.
