Niki e badi ke dar nahad-e bashar ast,
Shadi o ghami ke dar qaza o qadar ast
Ba charkh makon havale k’andar rah-e aql
Chark az tu hezar bar bicharetar ast

Good and evil, which are in the nature of mankind,
Joy and sadness, which are in chance and fate;
Do not attribute them to the machinery of the heavens, because in reason
That machine is a thousand times more helpless than you.

-Omar Khayyam
