Here you will find the Poem Ch 07 On The Effects Of Education Story 19 of poet Sa di
I asked an illustrious man for the reason of the tradition: Account as an enemy the passion which is between thy two loins. He replied: `The reason is because whatever enemy thou propitiatest becomes thy friend, whereas the more thou indulgest in a passion, the more it will oppose thee.? Man attains angelic nature by eating sparingly But if he be voracious like beasts he falls like a stone. He whose wishes thou fulfillest will obey thy command Contrary to passion, which will command, when obeyed.
