„The Wine of Life keeps oozing drop by drop,
The Leaves of Life keep falling one by one.“

—  Omar Khayyám
Context: By the help of God and with His precious assistance, I say that Algebra is a scientific art.

Such a thing is either a quantity or a unique relation, which is only determined by careful examination. What one searches for in the algebraic art are the relations which lead from the known to the unknown, to discover which is the object of Algebra as stated above. The perfection of this art consists in knowledge of the scientific method by which one determines numerical and geometric unknowns. Treatise on Demonstration of Problems of Algebra (1070).

That shall unlock the Door he howls without.“

—  Omar Khayyám
Context: The Vine had struck a fibre: which about If clings my being — let the Dervish flout; Of my Base metal may be filed a Key, That shall unlock the Door he howls without.

„We are no other than a moving row
Of Magic Shadow-shapes that come and go“
