Poem by Thomas Urquhart


Epigrams. The First Booke. 3. A brave spirit disdaineth the threats of Fortune


No man of resolution, will endure 
	His liberty in Fortunes hands to thrall; 
For hes not free, or whom she hath least powr: 
	But over whom she hath no powr at all: 
Nor hath she any chaine, wherewith to bind, 
The inclination of a noble mind.
