Thomas Urquhart

Epigrams. The Third Booke. 2. That no man, to speake properly, liveth, but he, that is Wise, and vertuous

IF wee lacke vertue, and good deeds to hold
Our life 〈〉
True life affords not though it make us old;
Nor lived he that lives not after death
For in good minds, the lives of men consist:
And they alone mortalitie resist.
