මත්ද්රව්ය, ලිංගිකත්වය සහ මුදල් යන මේ කවරකට වුවද
කෙනෙක් ඇලුනොත්, ගැලුනොත්, බැදුනොත්, ඉන් ඔහුව මුදාගැනීම
ඉතා අපහසු දෙයකි. එසේම ඒවා කෙරෙහි ඇලෙන්නේ, ගැලෙන්නේ,
බැදෙන්නේ ගැහැණියක් නම් ඉන් ඇයව මුදා ගැනීම ඊටත් අසීරු
කරුණකි. මුදල්, මත්ද්රව්ය සහ ලිංගිකත්වය යන මේ තුනටම, හරි
හරියට ඇබ්බැහි වුණු කෙනෙක් ඉන් ගලවා ගැනීම, හිතන්නවත් බැරි
තරම් අපහසු දෙයකි.

විනාශ නොවී පැවතිය හැකි බවත්
ඔවුහු තේරුම් ගත්හ.
