How long, how long, in infinite Pursuitby Omar Khayyam
English version by Edward FitzGerald
Original Language Persian/Farsi
How long, how long, in infinite Pursuit
Of This and That endeavour and dispute?
Better be merry with the fruitful Grape
Than sadden after none, or bitter, Fruit.
|-- from The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, by Omar Khayyam / Translated by Edward FitzGerald|
