Your hope for repentance
Will meet with disapppointment.
For this is the life,
Not desert tents,
Not camel's milk!”
- Abu Nuwas
“You, mad to expect repentance,
Tear your robe all you want;
I will never repent!”
“I bought abandon dear
And sold all piety for pleasure.
My own free spirit I have followed,
And never will I give up lust.”
