Old but Good Advice

Gilgamesh Epic, from tablet iii of the Sippar fragment (tr. Andrew George):
But you, Gilgamesh, let your belly be full,
    enjoy yourself always by day and by night!
Make merry each day,
    dance and play day and night!

Let your clothes be clean,
    let your head be washed, may you bathe in water!
Gaze on the child who holds your hand,
    let your wife enjoy your repeated embrace!
