Poem by Thomas Urquhart
Epigrams. The Second Booke. № 23. We ought not to regard the contumelies, and calumnies of Lyars, and profane men
ASpersions, which base people viciously Inflict upon mens credits, I contemne; That sentence having small authoritie, Where he, that is condemned, doth condemne: And to be hated by a wicked spirit, Doth argue oftentimes the greater merit.
