Sensual Pleasures Never Satiated

There is no satisfying sensual desires, even with the rain of gold coins.
For sensual pleasures give little satisfaction and much pain.
Having understood this, the wise man finds no delight even in heavenly pleasures.
The disciple of the Supreme Buddha delights in the destruction of craving.
– Dhammapada XIV. Buddhavagga: The Buddha :: Verse 186 – 187
