Loving, or not loving, the world


The world is a dwelling surrounded by scourges, and heaped with perfidy. Its state endures not, and all who come to it perish. The world is a dwelling degrading to its owner, where the lawful is mixed with the unlawful, good with evil, sweet with bitter. Look upon the world with the eye of the cloistered ascetic; not as one loving it blindly.
