My mind to me a kingdom is, such present joys therein I find, that it excels all other bliss.
True hearts have eyes and ears, no tongues to speak; They hear and see, and sigh, and then they break.
My wealth is health and perfect ease; My conscience clear my chief defence; I neither seek by bribes to please, Nor by deceit to breed offence. Thus do I live; thus will I die. Would all did so well as I!
Some weigh their pleasure by their lust, Their wisdom by their rage of will, Their treasure is their only trust; And cloake' d craft their store of skill. But all the pleasure that I find Is to maintain a quiet mind.
My mind to me an empire is,While grace affordeth health.
If nice guys finish last, then great guys come in right after them.
Some have too much, yet still do crave; I little have, and seek no more. They are but poor, though much they have, And I am rich with little store.
The little smiling cottage! where at eve
He meets his rosy children at the door,
Prattling their welcomes, and his honest wife,
With good brown cake and bacon slice, intent
To cheer his hunger after labor hard.
My mind to me a kingdom is, Such present joys therein I find, That it excels all other bliss That earth affords or grows by kind. Though much I want which most would have, Yet still my mind for bids to crave.
And love is love, in beggars and in kings.
O liberty, Parent of happiness, celestial born When the first man became a living soul; His sacred genius thou.
My Mind To Me a Kingdom Is.
