Poem by Thomas Urquhart


Epigrams. The First Booke. № 4. How to become wise


Who would be truly wise, must in all haste 
	His mind of perturbations dispossesse; 
For wisedome is a large, and spatious guhest: 
	And can not dwell, but in an empty place, 
Therefore to harbour her, we must not grudge, 
To make both vice, and passion to dislodge.
