Flee from the study of all sciences—'tis better thus,
and twine thy fingers in the curly locks of a loved one—'tis better thus,
ere that fate shall spill thy blood;
pour thou the blood of the bottle into the cup—'tis better thus.

 

Bodl 131

Flee from the study of science & piety, is is better thus,
And twine thy fingers in the curly locks of a loved one, it is better thus,
Ere that Fate shall spill thy blood
Pour as much blood as thou canst into the cup, it is better thus.

Chr 45

It is better that thou fliest from all the lore of the sciences.
It is better that thou seizest the tip of the lock of the charmer.
Ere Time shall shed thy blood, it is better that thou
sheddest the blood of the refining vessel into the cup.

F4 41

Perplext no more with Human or Divine,
To-morrow's tangle to the winds resign,
And lose your fingers in the tresses of
The Cypress-slender Minister of Wine.

HA 41c

Flee from the study of all sciences—'tis better thus,
And twine thy fingers in the curly locks of a loved one—'tis better thus.

Nic 359

Pour toi, ce qu'il y a de mieux, c'est de fair l'étude des sciences et la dévotion; c'est de t'accrocher à la chevelure d'une ravissante amie; c'est de verser dans la coupe le sang de la vigne avant que le temps ait versé le tien.

P 719

From study and lore and devotion flight is best;
To hang to the tress of the charmer the spright is best;
Or ever the hand of fell Fortune thy heart's blood shed,
To shed the flask's blood in the goblet bright is best.

Th 533

Study of science you had best beware;
And best hang o'er the tress-tip of the fair
And ere that Fortune shed your best life-blood,
Best shed the flask's blood in the cup to share.

Wh 426

Vain study of philosophy eschew!
Rather let tangled curls attract your view;
And shed the bottle's life-blood in your cup,
Or e'er death shed your blood, and feast on you.
