Ch 08 On Rules For Conduct In Life - Story 02 - Poem by Saadi Shirazi

A great man having been asked why he wore his seal-ring on his left hand, whereas the right possesses so much excellence, replied: ‘Knowest thou not that the meritorious are always neglected?’

He who has created joy and distress
Apportions either excellence or luck.
