Sorge, Lynn

Whoever has a mind to abundance of trouble,
Let him furnish himself with a ship and a Woman,
For no two things will find you more Employment,
If once you begin to rig them out with all their Streamers,
Nor are they sufficiently adorned,
Or satisfied, that you have done enough to set them forth.
