A wonderful and hard hitting couplet by Urdu poet Kaifi Azmi saab, on the never ending desires –

Insaan ki khwahishon ki koi intehaan nahi
Do gaz zameen bhi chahiye, do gaz qafan ke baad

Rough English translation
There is no limit to the desires of a person
One still desires for two yards of space on Earth (to be buried), after receiving two yards of cloth for a shroud
