The advantages of the world which you consume or rely upon
You are impotent if you do not strive in search of them,
Put aside the remainder of it, it is valueless, beware !
Lest you barter the advantage of this existence, for that of another.


P 815

Of the goods of the world what thou eatest and drinkest,
Excusable 't is if thereafter thou swinkest:
All else is but idle adornment; beware
Lest dear life for such fripp'ry to barter thou thinkest.

Th 706

You are excusable if you strive o'er
That which you eat and drink of this world's store;
All else mere trifles weigh, have then a care
Lest your dear life you sacrifice therefor.
