Poem by Thomas Urquhart


Epigrams. The Second Booke. № 38. The truest wealth, man hath it from himselfe


IF you from discontents have a desire
To live exeem'd, the way is ne'r t'importune
Page  35 Your friends with suits: but alwaies to require
Your riches from your selfe: and not from fortune;
For your dislike, affection, and opinion
Are things still subject to your owne dominion.
