Ben Jonson Quote

Princes that would their people should do well
Must at themselves begin, as at the head;
For men, by their example, pattern out
Their limitations, and regard of laws:
A virtuous court a world to virtue draws.


The Works of Ben Jonson, which Were Formerly Printed in Two Volumes, are Now Reprinted in One (ed. 1692)
