Freed From Craving Runs Back To Craving

There is one who, turning away from desire (for household life)
takes to the life of the forest (i.e., of a monk).
But after being freed from the household,
he runs back to it.
Behold that man! Though freed, he runs back to that very bondage!
– Dhammapada XXIV. Tanhavagga: Craving :: Verse 344
