So is every man: .he is born m vanity and sin : he comes into the world like morning mushrooms, soon thrusting up their heads into the air, and conversing with their kindred of the same production, and as soon they turn into dust and forget- ftilness: some of them without any other interest in the affairs of the world, but that they made their parents a little glad, and very sorrowful: others ride longer in the storm; it may be until seven years of vanity be expired, and then pin-adventure the sun shines hot upon their heads, and they fallinto the shades below, into the cover of death and darkness of the grave to hide them....
