Here you will find the Poem Ch 03 On The Excellence Of Contentment Story 26 of poet Sa di
I have seen a fat fool, dressed in a costly robe, with a turban of Egyptian linen on his head, riding on an Arab horse. Someone said: `Sa?di, what thinkest thou of this famous brocade upon this ignorant animal?? I replied: `It is like ugly characters scrawled with gold-water.? Verily he is like an ass among men, A calf, a body which is bleating. This animal cannot be said to resemble a man Except in his cloak, turban and outward adornment. Examine all his property and belongings of his estate Thou wilt find nothing lawful to take except his blood. If a noble man becomes impoverished imagine not That his high worth will also decrease. But if into a silver threshold golden nails are driven By a Jew, think not that he will thereby become noble.
