SECOND OF DAILY HYMNS, TO BE CHANTED THE THIRD DAY

Back

May I, o Gods, never enjoy sweet pleasures to excess,

but put a limit to them, so that nothing bad can happen

to the soul or to the body because of them.

May I never be hungry for richness, but

may I be tempered in their use and have dignity in the necessities

of the body, so that I can be proud of my independence.

May I at last never be overwhelmed by a seducent,

vain opinion, and recognize that itís worthy only because of this:

because it can lead us to the real divine virtue.

George Gemistos Plethon

translated by Manuela Simeoni
