Poem by Thomas Urquhart
Epigrams. The Second Booke. № 4. How abject a thing it is, for a man to have bin long in the world without giving any proofe either by vertue, or learning, that he hath beene at all
THat aged man, we should (without all doubt) Of all men else the most disgracefull hold: Who can produce no testimony, but The number of his yeares, that he is old; For of such men what can bee testifyed, But that being borne, they lived long, then dyed.
