An Example حکایت خویشتن دار

An Example حکایت خویشتن دار

Bustan Saadi بوستان سعدی

Two people saw dust and confusion and strife;
Shoes everywhere scattered and stones flying rife.
دوکس گرد دیدند و آشوب و جنگ
پراگنده نعلین و پرنده سنگ
One viewed the disturbance and broke from the way;
One joined and his head became smashed in the fray.
یکی فتنه دید از طرف بر شکست
یکی در میان آمد و سر شکست
Than the abstinent, none can more happiness share,
For one’s good or one’s evil is not his affair!
کسی خوشتر از خویشتن دار نیست
که با خوب و زشت کسش کار نیست
Your eyes and your ears to the head are consigned;
For speech, there’s the mouth, and for reason, the mind.
تو را دیده در سر نهادند و گوش
دهن جای گفتار و دل جای هوش
If you, haply, the downs from the ups recognize,
Do not say this is short, or that long, in your eyes!
مگر بازدانی نشیب از فراز
نگویی که این کوته است، آن دراز
