How much of inclination to avarice & ancient tradition
O friend, what does the iniquitous world do
We go away & travel & what ever comes goes away
Not one moment is according to your own desire


P 697

How long for greed, O friend, with worn-out body run,
Still measuring the world from rise to set of son?
All things that come and be alike depart and go,
No moment having brought content to anyone.

Th 551

How long, O, friend, with body that doth tire,
The world to trace with eager foot aspire?
All things that come and pass, depart and go,
And not one moment suiteth thy desire.
