Poem by Thomas Urquhart
Epigrams. The Second Booke. № 27. The bad returnes of ingrate men should not deterre us from being liberall
THough you ingrate receivers dayly find, Let not their faults make you lesse Noble prove; It not being, th'action of a gen'rous mind To give and lose so, as to lose, and give; For that, a churle may doe, in hope of gaine: But this partakes of a heroick straine.
