Much have I labored, much read o’er of Arabic and Persian lore, collecting tales unknown and known; now two and sixty years are flown. Regret, and deeper woe of sin, ’tis all that youth has ended in! And I with mournful thoughts rehearse Bu Táhir Khusrawáni’s verse: “I mind me of my youth and sigh, alas for youth, for youth gone by!” - Ferdowsi
