Epigrams. The Second Booke. ¹ 40. Who really are rich, and who poore
HE, that agreeth with his povertie, Is truly rich: while (on the other part) He's poore, who 'midst the superfluitie Of wealth, in new desires consumes his heart; For 'tis an empty mind inflicts the curse Of poverty: and not an empty purse.
