The numbers to the right of paragraph bottom lines are the original verse, quatrain numbers and followed by those of Ed. FitzGerald, who likely missed the whole idea of the Rubaiyat, that of love of Allah, God, Creation, and not of just another person. On his death bed FitzGerald refused to admit that Omar followed the Sufi path.

Verse 78, EF's 80, points to predestination. And likely such is true for those who don't learn much while in the body, learn why they are here, incarnate.

All translations of The Rubaiyat are beautiful and worth reading, studying.
