Thomas Urquhart


Epigrams. The Second Booke. 2. Those that have greatest estates are not alwayes the wealthiest men


THey're richer, who diminish their desires:
Though their possessions be not amplified,
Then Monarchs: who in owning large Empires,
Have minds, that never will be satisfied;
For he is poore, that wants what he would have:
And rich, who having nought, doth nothing crave.
