concerns of man

here’s a quote from gilgamesh that prefaces a new book i’m reading (it’s christopher moore’s new book, so not nearly as momentous or weighty as gilgamesh but the quote is neat.) just thought it was a nice thought for the day:

What you seek, you shall never find.

For when the Gods made man,

They kept immortality for themselves.

Fill your belly.

Dan and night make merry,

Let Days be full of joy.

Love the child that holds your hand.

Let your wife delight in your embrace.

For these alone are the concerns of man.
