Why so large cost‚ having so short a lease‚ Dost thou upon thy fading mansion spend? Shall worms‚ inheritors of this excess‚ Eat up thy charge? is this thy body’s end? Then soul‚ live thou upon thy servant’s loss‚ And let that pine to aggravate thy store; Buy terms divine in selling hours of dross;
