Omar Khayyam was a Persian mathematician and also a well-known astronomer and a poet. Today is his 971st birthday and Google has paid tributes to the genius with a Google doodle.

This is one of those rare times when Google has repeated a doodle for the same event. Omar Khayyam's 964th birthday was also celebrated with a creative Google doodle in 2012.

Omar Khayyam is well-known for his work on the classification and solution of cubic equations, where he provided geometric solutions by the intersection of conics. But his works as a poet are so good that they can teach you how to live.

  • "Be happy for this moment. This moment is your life."

  • "A hair divides what is false and true."

  • "Drink! for you know not whence you came nor why: drink! for you know not why you go, nor where."

  • "Living Life Tomorrow's fate, though thou be wise, Thou canst not tell nor yet surmise; Pass, therefore, not today in vain, For it will never come again."

  • "Myself when young did eagerly frequent doctor and saint, and heard great argument about it and about: but evermore came out by the same door as in I went."

  • "The moving finger writes, and having written moves on. Nor all thy piety nor all thy wit, can cancel half a line of it."

  • "The thoughtful soul to solitude retires."

  • "There was a door to which I found no key: There was the veil through which I might not see."

  • "When I want to understand what is happening today or try to decide what will happen tomorrow, I look back."

  • "You know, my friends, with what a brave carouse I made a Second Marriage in my house; favored old barren reason from my bed, and took the daughter of the vine to spouse."

Let us pay our tributes to Omar Khayyam on his 971st birthday by remembering his amazing work.

Happy Birthday, Omar Khayyam!
