Thomas Urquhart


Epigrams. The Third Booke. 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.
