Listen to some of his Rubâiyât, freely trnslated by Fitzgerald
(recited by Shamlou, the last one, sung by Shajarian,tells you :
Drink wine, cause that's the the
That's what you get out of your youth
It's time for flowers and wines, and friends, joyfully drunk
Have a good time for a while, cause that's life !)
we all join hands,
Our joyful feet will not overcome our chagrins
Let's rise up for a sip of wine, before the Sun shines on lands,
Cause many a times it will rise, but finds only our sands !
Omar Khayyâm, 11th century, personal translation
the Master of "earthly hedonists" !
The true masters do not have any disciples !!
see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour.
As you may know, originally the word "paradise" means "garden" in (very) ancient Persian. Not knowing about any other one (do you ?! if yes, can you give me the address ?!), here we use it in its original sense.That's why we live : a paradise on earth ! The more we enjoy life and living, the more we're eager to make "others" enjoy ! ("Others" is everything in the nature : of course all of the human beings, but not only, it's the whole nature. We're only a very tiny small part of it, not the centre !)
So here, you're in a very tiny paradise, containing only 3 trees.
I do not think that I'll have much time to add many "original works" to this "tree", knowing that I have 2 others to look after.
Still, as a nice "globalized" individual !, I come into many interesting topics in English, and whether we like it or not, it's becoming harder and harder to escape from the English supremacy nowadays. First of all, have a look on
This may give you the eagerness to read it, of course in a critical manner, from side to side, as I did.
Otherwise, almost everything you may find here is listed on the right frame.
In addition to some "original works" (not published elsewhere), these are mainly :
In Quotations, poems some of my favourite pieces.
In " (P)references" some references to my preferences ; articles that I judge worth-reading, helping us to walk (together) toward a better world. As a matter of fact, the new shape of this tree is to honour an Indian writer that I've discovered recently (see about her in this section).
So if you're able to read French or Persian, you may visit the other 2 trees. And in any case, please feel free to send us your comments.
A bientôt !
