Everything declines after reaching perfection, therefore let no man be beguiled by the sweetness of a pleasant life.

As you have observed, these are the decrees that are inconstant: he whom a single moment has made happy, has been harmed by many other moments

And this is the abode that will show pity for no man, nor will any condition remain in its state for it.

The above is a few lines from the poem Ritha Ashbiliyyah, which can be read here. Quite profound…
