Thomas Urquhart (Томас Эркарт)


Epigrams. The Second Booke. № 14. That a truly generous mind, had rather give a curtesie, then be resting one, after the presented opportunity to repay it


AS stil a greater care doth men possesse,
To keepe things well, then freely to bestowe them:
So to a noble spirit it is lesse
Laborious to giue benefites, then owe them:
In whom brave actions are more naturall,
Then to the flame to mount, or earth to fall.
