Story of the sage and his son حکایت حکیم و پسرش

Bustan Saadi بوستان سعدی

In Nishafiur? what did an enlightened man say,
When sleep bore his son, at night prayers, away?
  یکی در نشابور دانی چه گفت
چو فرزندش از فرض خفتن بخفت؟
“Oh son! do not hope, if you have any soul,
That you ever will reach, without striving, the goal!
توقع مدار ای پسر گر کسی
که بی سعی هرگز به منزل رسی
The barley cut early will not come to aught;
‘Tis a profitless body, as if it were naught.  
سمیلان چو بر مینگیرد قدم
وجودی است بی منفعت چون عدم
Be desirous of gain, and for loss show alarm!
For shareless is he who is careless of harm “.
طمع دار سود و بترس از زیان
که بی بهره باشند فارغ زیان
