Poem by Thomas Urquhart
Epigrams. The Third Booke. № 28. That vertue is better, and more powerfull then Fortune
VErtue denyeth nought, but what to grant Hurts the receiver, and is good to want: Nor takes she ought away, which would not crosse The owner: and is lucrative to losse; She no man can deceive: she lookes not strange: Nor is she subject to the meanest change: Embrace her then; for she can give that, which Will (without gold, or silver) make you rich.
