What You Seek, You Shall Never Find

“What you seek, you shall never find.

For when the Gods made man,
They kept immortality for themselves.

Fill your belly.

Day and night make merry,

Let days be full of joy.

Love the child that holds your hand.

Let your spouse delight in your embrace.

For these alone are the concerns of man.”

From The Epic of Gilgamesh 2000-1400 BCE
