Epigrams. The First Booke. ¹ 11. How to be alwayes in repose

So that desire, and feare may never jarre 
	Within your soule: no losse of meanes, nor ryot 
Of cruell foes, no sicknesse, harme by Warre, 
	Nor chance whats’ever will disturbe your quiet; 
For in a setled, and well temper’d mind, 
None can the meanest perturbation find.
