„Of my Base metal may be filed a Key,
That shall unlock the Door he howls without.“

— Omar Khayyám
Context: The Vine had struck a fibre: which about If clings my being — let the Dervish flout; Of my Base metal may be filed a Key, That shall unlock the Door he howls without.

„Yet Ah, that Spring should vanish with the Rose!“

— Omar Khayyám
Context: Yet Ah, that Spring should vanish with the Rose! That Youth's sweet-scented manuscript should close! The Nightingale that in the branches sang, Ah, whence, and whither flown again, who knows!

„By the help of God and with His precious assistance, I say that Algebra is a scientific art. The objects with which it deals are absolute numbers and measurable quantities which, though themselves unknown, are related to "things" which are known, whereby the determination of the unknown quantities is possible.“

— Omar Khayyám
Context: By the help of God and with His precious assistance, I say that Algebra is a scientific art. The objects with which it deals are absolute numbers and measurable quantities which, though themselves unknown, are related to "things" which are known, whereby the determination of the unknown quantities is possible. Such a thing is either a quantity or a unique relation, which is only determined by careful examination. What one searches for in the algebraic art are the relations which lead from the known to the unknown, to discover which is the object of Algebra as stated above. The perfection of this art consists in knowledge of the scientific method by which one determines numerical and geometric unknowns. Treatise on Demonstration of Problems of Algebra (1070).

„The Wine of Life keeps oozing drop by drop,
The Leaves of Life keep falling one by one.“

— Omar Khayyám
Context: Whether at Naishapur or Babylon, Whether the Cup with sweet or bitter run, The Wine of Life keeps oozing drop by drop, The Leaves of Life keep falling one by one.

„We are no other than a moving row
Of Magic Shadow-shapes that come and go“

— Omar Khayyám
Context: We are no other than a moving row Of Magic Shadow-shapes that come and go Round with the Sun-illumined Lantern held In Midnight by the Master of the Show;

„Indeed, indeed, Repentance oft before
I swore — but was I sober when I swore?“

— Omar Khayyám
Context: Indeed, indeed, Repentance oft before I swore — but was I sober when I swore? And then and then came Spring, and Rose-in-hand My thread-bare Penitence apieces tore.

„A Book of Verses underneath the Bough,
A Jug of Wine, a Loaf of Bread — and Thou
Beside me singing in the Wilderness —
Oh, Wilderness were Paradise enow!“

— Omar Khayyám
Here with a Loaf of Bread beneath the Bough, A Flask of Wine, a Book of Verse — and Thou Beside me singing in the Wilderness — And Wilderness is Paradise enow. FitzGerald's first edition (1859) A book, a woman, and a flask of wine: The three make heaven for me; it may be thine Is some sour place of singing cold and bare — But then, I never said thy heaven was mine. As translated by Richard Le Gallienne (1897) Give me a flagon of red wine, a book of verses, a loaf of bread, and a little idleness. If with such store I might sit by thy dear side in some lonely place, I should deem myself happier than a king in his kingdom. As translated by Justin McCarthy (1888).

„Oh, threats of Hell and Hopes of Paradise!
One thing at least is certain — This Life flies;
One thing is certain and the rest is Lies;
The Flower that once has blown for ever dies.“

— Omar Khayyám
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 for ever dies. FitzGerald's first edition (1859).
