The man of God with half his loaf content

by Sa'di

English version by Edward B. Eastwick
Original Language Persian/Farsi

The man of God with half his loaf content,
To darweshes the remnant will present;
But though a king seven regions should subdue,
He'll still another conquest keep in view.

-- from The Gulistan of Sadi: The Rose Garden, Translated by Edward B. Eastwick
