Ch 08 On Rules For Conduct In Life - Maxim 32

Sa di

 Next Poem          

Sages eat slow, devotees half satisfy their appetite, recluses only eat to preserve life, youths until the dishes are removed, old men till they begin to perspire, but qalandars till no room remains in the bowels for drawing breath and no food on the table for anybody.

A slave to constipation spends two sleepless nights,
One night from repletion and another from distress.
