Poem by Thomas Urquhart
Epigrams. The Second Booke. № 17. How generous a thing it is, not to succumbe to pleasure, and sensualitie
NO great exploit can be expected from That man, who being profoundly plung'd in his Owne sense, permits himselfe to be o'rcome B' a foe s'effeminat, as pleasure is; For mightie minds most pleasures doe conceive, When pleasures over them no power have.
