    A wretched soul, bruised with adversity,
    We bid be quiet when we hear it cry.
    But were we burd'ned with like weight of pain,
    As much or more we should ourselves complain:
    So thou, that hast no unkind mate to grieve thee,
    With urging helpless patience wouldst relieve me;
    But if thou live to see like right bereft,
    This fool-begged patience in thee will be left.

Sweet are the uses of adversity,
Which, like the toad, ugly and venomous,
Wears yet a precious jewel in his head;
And this our life, exempt from human haunt,
Finds tongues in trees, books in the running brooks,
Sermons in stones, and good in everything.
