Wisdome’s a trimmer thing, than shop e’er gave

July 10, 2016

 


  In clothes, cheap handsomenesse doth bear the bell,
  Wisdome’s a trimmer thing, than shop e’er gave.
  Say not then, This with that lace will do well;
  But, This with my discretion will be brave.
    Much curiousnesse is a perpetual wooing,
    Nothing with labour, folly long a doing.
