Poem by Thomas Urquhart
Epigrams. The First Booke. № 36. How difficult a thing it is, to tread in the pathes of vertue
THe way to vertue's hard, uneasie, bends Aloft, being full of steep, and rugged Alleys; For never one to a high place ascends, That alwayes keepes the plaine, and pleasant Valleyes: And reason in each humane breast ordaines, That precious things be purchased with paines.
