Thomas Urquhart (Томас Эркарт)


Epigrams. The Second Booke. № 33. That there is no true riches, but of necessary things


THe use of mony, is to have the meanes,
Whereby all needfull things may be possess'd,
Which are, but few, and small, & got with ease:
What we have more then that, 'snot wealth, but chains,
Or Fetters of the mind: and at the best,
But heapes of labour, feare, and carefulnesse.
