Poem by Thomas Urquhart
Epigrams. The First Booke. № 18. Not time, but our actions, are the true measure of our life
THat life is short, which measur'd by the span Of time hath been of vertuous actions scant: And one day's longer in a learned man, Then twenty Lusters of an ignorant; For life is good, and 'tis the quality Of goodnesse, that extends its quantity.
