Poem by Thomas Urquhart
Epigrams. The Second Booke. № 19. What is not vertuously acquired, if acquired by vs, is not properly ours
WHos'ever by sinister meanes is come To places of preferment, and to walke Within the bounds of vertue takes no plea∣sure: Provideth onely titles for his tombe, And for the baser people pratling talke: But nothing for himselfe in any measure; For fortune doth with all things us befit, Save the sole mind of ours: and Vice kils it.
