Thomas Urquhart


Epigrams. The Second Booke. 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.
