But hear an old man’s words: the heart that’s freed
From gnawing passion and ambitious greed
Looks on kings’ treasures and the dust as one;
The man who sells his brother, as you’ve done,
For this same worthless dust, will never be

And laid them low: there’s nothing you can do
But turn to God; take thought then for the way
You travel, since it leads to Judgment Day.”
