Whitney's Choice of Emblemes 53a

In dies meliora

The greedie Sowe so longe as shee dothe finde,
Some scatteringes lefte, of harvest under foote
She forward goes and never lookes behinde,
While anie sweete remayneth for to roote,
   Even soe wee shoulde, to goodnes everie daie
   Still further passe, and not to turne nor staie.
