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