Here you will find the Poem Ch 05 On Love And Youth Story 05 of poet Sa di
A schoolboy was so perfectly beautiful and sweet-voiced that the teacher, in accordance with human nature, conceived such an affection towards him that? he often recited the following verses: I am not so little occupied with thee, O heavenly face, That remembrance of myself occurs to my mind. From thy sight I am unable to withdraw my eyes Although when I am opposite I may see that an arrow comes. Once the boy said to him: `As thou strivest to direct my studies, direct also my behaviour. If thou perceivest anything reprovable in my conduct, although it may seem approvable to me, inform me thereof that I may endeavour to change it.? He replied: `O boy, make that request to someone else because the eyes with which I look upon thee behold nothing but virtues.? The ill-wishing eye, be it torn out Sees only defects in his virtue. But if thou possessest one virtue and seventy faults A friend sees nothing except that virtue.
