Pàgina 12 - Oh, Thou, who Man of baser Earth didst make, And who with Eden didst devise the Snake ; For all the Sin wherewith the Face of Man Is blacken'd, Man's Forgiveness give — and take!
Pàgina 21 - Ah, make the most of what we yet may spend, Before we too into the Dust descend; Dust into Dust, and under Dust to lie, Sans Wine, sans Song, sans Singer, and — sans End! Alike for those who for TO-DAY prepare, And those that after some TO-MORROW stare, A Muezzin from the Tower of Darkness cries, "Fools! your Reward is neither Here nor There.
Pàgina 17 - And we, that now make merry in the Room They left, and Summer dresses in new bloom, Ourselves must we beneath the Couch of Earth Descend — ourselves to make a Couch — for whom?

Pàgina 26 - RUBAIYAT OF OMAR KHAYYAM. THE ASTRONOMER-POET OF PERSIA. Rendered into English Verse by Edward FitzGerald.
Pàgina 27 - Which is to be read as Monkish Latin, like ' Dies Irae ', etc., retaining the Italian value of the Vowels, not the Classical. You will think me a perfectly Aristophanic Old Man when I tell you how many of Omar I could not help running into such bad Latin.
