Poem by Thomas Urquhart
Epigrams. The First Booke. № 32. That if we strove not more for superfluities, then for what is needfull, we would not be so much troubled, is wee are
IF by the necessary use of things, The ornaments wee measure of our honour, And not by that, which fancy doth suggest us: Wee will not need those wares, the Marchant brings From forraine Countries: and withall exoner Our minds of what might otherwise molest us.
