Gulistan of Saadi
On the Excellence of Contentment
A Maghrabi supplicant said in Aleppo in the row of linen drapers: ‘Lords of wealth if you were just
and we contented, the trade of begging would vanish from the world.’
O contentment, make me rich
For besides thee no other wealth exists.
Loqman selected the corner of patience.
Who has no patience has no wisdom.
