Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam in English

Waste not your Hour, nor in the vain pursuit
 | Omar Khayyam | Rubaiyat in English

Waste not your Hour, nor in the vain pursuit
Of This and That endeavour and dispute;
Better be jocund with the fruitful Grape
Than sadden after none, or bitter, Fruit.

Translation: Edward FitzGerald
