Poem by Thomas Urquhart
Epigrams. The Third Booke. № 3. We ought always to thinke upon what we are to say, before we utter any thing; the speeches and talk of solid wits, being still pre∣meditated, and never using to forerunne the mind
OUr tongu's the hearts interpreter, and still In wise discourse hath but the second place The heart should end, ere th'tongue begin; for while The Legate speakes, the Truch-man holdes his peace. Which order being inverted, we abuse The hearers patience: and our selves confuse.
