A description of the experience

Saadi - The Gulistan of Sa‘di – 11 from The Manners of Kings Solitude

With a powerful arm and the strength of the wrist
To break the five fingers of a poor man is sin.
Let him be afraid who spares not the fallen
Because if he falls no one will take hold of his hand.
Whoever sows bad seed and expects good fruit
Has cudgeled his brains for nought and begotten vain imaginations.
Extract the cotton from your ears and administer justice to your people
And if you fail to do so, there is a day of retribution.

The source of the experience
