Be You

The more opportunities you give someone,
To be disrespectful towards you,
The more chances are there to lose respect for your own self.
The more you depend on others for getting respect;

Sonnet 027: Weary With Toil, I Haste Me To My Bed

Weary with toil, I haste me to my bed,
The dear respose for limbs with travel tirèd;
But then begins a journey in my head
To work my mind, when body's work's expirèd.

I am back from up the country -- very sorry that I went --
Seeking for the Southern poets' land whereon to pitch my tent;

Burnt a lot of fancy verses, and I'm glad that I am back.

Visage of them can alter him;

Translation Of: The Odyssey Of Homer: Book Iii

ARGUMENT

Telemachus arriving at Pylus, enquires of Nestor concerning Ulysses. Nestor relates to him all that he knows or has heard of the Greecians since their departure from the siege of Troy, but not being able to give him any satisfactory account of Ulysses, refers him to Menelaus. At evening Minerva quits Telemachus, but discovers herself in going. Nestor sacrifices to the Goddess, and the solemnity ended, Telemachus sets forth for Sparta in one of Nestor's chariots, and accompanied by Nestor's son, Pisistratus.

Ch 03 On The Excellence Of Contentment Story 22

I met a trader who possessed one hundred and fifty camel loads of merchandise with forty slaves and servants. One evening in the oasis of Kish he took me into his apartment and taking all night no rest kept up an incoherent gabble, saying: â??I have such and such a warehouse in Turkestan, such and such goods in Hindostan; this is the title-deed of such and such an estate and in this affair such and such a man is security.â?? He said: â??I intend to go to Alexandria because it has a good climateâ??, and correcting himself continued: â??No, because the African sea is boisterous. O Saâ??di, I have one journey more to undertake and after performing it I shall during the rest of my life sit in a corner and enjoy contentment.â?? I asked: â??What journey is that?â?? He replied: â??I shall carry Persian brimstone to China because I heard that it fetched a high price. I shall also carry Chinese porcelain to Rum and Rumi brocade to India and Indian steel to Aleppo, convey glass-ware of Aleppo to Yemen, striped cloth of Yemen to Pares. After that I shall abandon trading and shall sit down in a shop.â?? He had talked so much of this nonsenses that no more strength remained in him so he said: â??O Saâ??di, do thou also tell me something of what thou hast seen and heard.â?? I recited:

â??Thou mayest have heard that in the plain of Ghur
Once a leader fell down from his beast of burden,

The storm she stayed, and checked him with a frown.
