why ponder the future

I like this. :)

Why ponder thus the future to foresee,
and jade thy brain to vain perplexity?
Cast off thy care, leave Allah's plans to him -
He formed them all without consulting thee.

Omar Khayyam. The Rubaiyat.

(extracted from Three Cups of Tea - Greg Mortenson and David Oliver Relin)
