Poem by Thomas Urquhart
Epigrams. The Third Booke. ¹ 43. We should not be troubled at the accidents of Fortune nor those things, which cannot be eschewed
Let’s take in patience, sicknesse, banishments, Paine, losse of goods, death, and enforced strife; For none of those are so much punishments, As Tributes, which we pay unto this life; From the whole tract whereof we cannot borrow One dram of Joy, that is not mix’d with sorrow.
