Rumi: Man craves winter in summer
   
  
_____________________________
      
Man craves winter in summer, and when winter comes, he likes it not, for he is never content with any state [of things], neither with poverty not with a life of plenty. May man be killed! How ungrateful he is! Whenever he obtains guidance, he spurns it.
 
(Rumi)
