Daylight savings time has really got me screwed up. I’m so late I couldn’t even get my 15-minute walk in. I’m taking the time to read a stanza. Then I have to figure out where my comments section went to, AGAIN. Ugh! WP, what gives?
Of the property which he has gained
no man should suffer need; for the hated
oft is spared what for the dear was destined.
Much goes worse than is expected.
A man should spend his hard-earned money
on whatever he may want;
saving for dear ones may serve the detested:
things often don’t work out our way.
So this one is similar but in the same token not to stanza 39. From what I gathered, spend on what is needed and splurge when you can. Take care of the necessities first. The second part was a little more difficult for me. I think it means if things can go wrong. You can leave something behind for your loved ones but it could cause more problems. I’m really guessing here as this was a tough one for me. Or, maybe it’s because of daylight savings and I’m exhausted. Thoughts?
Happy ‘exhausted’ Monday Y’all!
