Is it better to own a vineyard or is it good to taste the wines of a thousand vineyards?
Surely it is good to own a vineyard but it is infinitely better to have such means to acquire the wines from a thousand.
For so it is that our tastes vary and those things pleasurable once lose their sweetness beyond their season.
Even the manna of heaven, that food of angels, and ambrosia of the gods was despised by mortal men.
What is good by day turns loathesome by night and so from all good things man needs respite.
Hence, it is that the nature of the world is so that she keeps an endless store of a great deal many things for all to have in this world.
