Томас Эркарт (Thomas Urquhart)




Текст оригинала на английском языке

Epigrams. The Third Booke. № 28. That vertue is better, and more powerfull then Fortune


VErtue denyeth nought, but what to grant
Hurts the receiver, and is good to want:
Nor takes she ought away, which would not crosse
The owner: and is lucrative to losse;
She no man can deceive: she lookes not strange:
Nor is she subject to the meanest change:
Embrace her then; for she can give that, which
Will (without gold, or silver) make you rich.
