Thomas Urquhart (Томас Эркарт)


Epigrams. The First Booke. № 24. That they may be alike rich, who are not alike abun∣dantly stored with worldly commodities


I have of Lands, nor moneyes no large portion:
Yet, if I be content, to thinke, that J•
Am not as rich, as any, were great dulnesse;
For wealth not being in plenty, but proportion,
Though vessels have not like capacity:
They may be all of them alike in fulnesse.
