Poem by Thomas Urquhart
Epigrams. The Second Booke. № 2. Those that have greatest estates are not alwayes the wealthiest men
THey're richer, who diminish their desires: Though their possessions be not amplified, Then Monarchs: who in owning large Empires, Have minds, that never will be satisfied; For he is poore, that wants what he would have: And rich, who having nought, doth nothing crave.
