Poem by Thomas Urquhart
Epigrams. The Third Booke. № 18. Of the covetous, and perverse inclinati∣on of the greatest part of Man∣kind
WHen profit goes with vertue, we respect her, So that her very foot-steps we adore: But if she walke alone, then we neglect her, And will not wait upon her any more: So basely 'gainst their consciences, most men Descend from honour, to attend on gaine.
