Quotes (3) Omar Khayyam



I have been nominated by my friend Roy, a fine blogger and photographer, in a challenge to post my three favorite quotes, one each for three consecutive days. I’ve sportively accepted: I’ll post three of the most interesting quotes I remember. Thanks Roy for the nomination!

Omar Khayyam

Omar Khayyam

Today, the third and the last quote is about Happiness by Omar Khayyam (1048–1131).

Omar Khayyam was a Persian mathematician, astronomer, philosopher, and poet. He also wrote treatises on mechanics, geography, mineralogy and music. His significance as a philosopher and teacher, and his few remaining philosophical works, have not received the same attention as his scientific and poetic writings.

With each post I must nominate three bloggers for the challenge.

Today are nominated:

  • Julie from Fong Pond Farm. She lives in the countryside in New Zealand (west Auckland), loves gardening and horticulture. She has a lot of awesome nature photos. A beautiful blog, do not miss it
  • creakingbones from creakingbones. As he says, he is an old bloke living in rural Australia, who loves Harley Davidson’s motorcycles and Nikon cameras (I think also Leicas). He is an excellent writer and photographer. His good sense of humor is transmitted to his photography, texts and all the blog. Another must ..
  • berryduchess from berryduchess. She is a young artist, photographer and blogger based now in Singapore. She has a wonderful blog, full of life everywhere. Visit the blog, but beware! she likes her nails red! 🙂
