[26] Oh, come with old Khayyam, and leave the Wise

by Omar Khayyam

English version by Edward FitzGerald
Original Language Persian/Farsi

Oh, come with old Khayyam, and leave the Wise
To talk; one thing is certain, that Life flies;
     One thing is certain, and the Rest is Lies;
The Flower that once has blown forever dies.

-- from The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, by Omar Khayyam / Translated by Edward FitzGerald
