Томас Эркарт (Thomas Urquhart)

Текст оригинала на английском языке

Epigrams. The Second Booke. № 43. That inconveniences ought to be regarded to before hand

TO wait for crosses, that may happen, is
The meane▪ whereby to beare them easily;
They not being much unlike the Cockatrice,
Which, if fore-seene by us, dyes instantly:
While unexpected misadventures kill
Joy in the breed, and tyrannize the will.
