Omar Khayam Quotes
Seed Like these
In cell and cloister, in monastery and synagogue
Some fear Hell and others dream of Heaven
But no one knows that the Secrets of God
Who has planted seeds like these in his heart.
The Enemy of Faith
I drink wine and opponents from my left and right tell me
‘Drink not, for it sis against the faith’
Since I know that wine is against the faith.
By God let me drink; since the blood of my enemy if lawful upon me.#

The mystery must remain secret from all fools

The Eye has to be hidden from all the Men.
Man of Earth
Do you know what a man of earth may be, Khayyam
A lantern of imaginings, and inside a lamp.
Take something with you
Take something from here to there
What profit will you make if you go empty-handed?
What I am, I am
Every group has its own theory about me
I am mine, what I am, I am.
The circle of this world is like a ring:
There is no doubt that we are nothing but
Naqsh, the design of its bezel.
