What To Get The Man Who Has Everything

”I have reigned over fifty years in victory and peace, beloved by my subjects, dreaded by my enemies, respected by my allies.

Riches and honours, powers and pleasures have waited on my call.

Nor does any earthly blessing appear to have been wanting in my years.

During this life of wonder I have kept count of the days of happiness that have been given to me: They number fourteen.

O, man, place not thy confidence in this world.”

 Caliph Abdar – Rahman III (found post mortem in his private prayer room)
