Thomas Urquhart (Томас Эркарт)


Epigrams. The Third Booke. № 7. To one, who seemed to be grievously discontented with his poverty


LEt never want of money vexe your braine;
Seeing all contentment is in th'only mind,
To the which mony doth no more pertaine,
Then to the Hierarchies of Angel-kind:
Thus Gold being Earthly, and the mind sublime:
T'abase your spirit, is a sort of crime.
