Bon mot for the week

"Drink! for you know not when you came, nor why:
Drink! for you know not why you go, nor where."

Edward FitzGerald (1809-1883)

I assume this is from The Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyam, but it's a long time since I read it. Online quotation lists with no proper attributions are the bane of my life just lately.
