(Translations of the three Inscriptions
on the Cover.)
1. Arabic.
“These are our works which prove what we have done;
Look, therefore, at our works when we are gone.”
2. Turkish.
“His genius cast its shadow o’er the world,
And in brief time he much achieved and wrought:
The Age’s Sun was he, and aging suns
Cast lengthy shadows, though their time be short.”
(Kemál Páská-zádé.)
3. Persian
“When we are dead, seek for our resting-place
Not in the earth, but in the hearts of men.”
(Jalálu ’d-Dín Rúmí.)
