Poem by Thomas Urquhart
Epigrams. The First Booke. № 23. A counsell not to vse severity, where gentle dealing may prevaile
STrive, never by constraint to crosse his will, Whose best affection fairely may be had; The noble mind of man being such, as still Follow's more heartily, then it is led: For there was never power, charme, nor Art, That could without consent, obtaine the heart.
