Boethius on Seeking Pleasure

From one of the poems in Boethius' The Consolation of Philosophy

'All pleasures take this road:
Those who indulge they goad.
Then, like the bees that swarm,
Having yielded honey's charm,
They flee; but on the heart
A lasting sting impart.'

Beware that lasting sting when you reach for that honey, people!
