Have no doubts because of trouble nor be thou discomfited

by Sa'di

English version by Edward B. Eastwick
Original Language Persian/Farsi

Have no doubts because of trouble nor be thou discomfited;
For the water of life's fountain springeth from a gloomy bed.

Ah! ye brothers of misfortune! be not ye with grief oppressed,
Many are the secret mercies which with the All-bounteous rest.

-- from The Gulistan of Sadi: The Rose Garden, Translated by Edward B. Eastwick
