Poem by Thomas Urquhart
Epigrams. The First Booke. № 12. A wise man onely may properly be said to enjoy life
His life is short, who present times neglects, Feares times to come, and hath past-times forgot: Or rather, while he breaths his Age, hee makes A base abode in time, but liveth not; For onely hee leades, in judicious eyes, The longest life, who lives, till he be wise.
