O heart ! thou arrivest not at the mysterious secret
Thou arrivest not at the conceits of the ingenious philosophers
Make thyself a heaven here with wine & cup
For, at that place where heaven is, thou mayst arrive, or mayst not.

 

Bodl 143

O heart! at the mysterious secret thou arrivest not,
at the conceits of the ingenious philosophers thou arrivest not;
make thyself a heaven here with wine and cup,
for at that place where heaven is, thou mayst arrive, or mayst not.

Chr 33

O heart, thou arrivest not at the secrets of the mystery,
thou arrivest not at the nice distinctions of the subtle thinkers.
Prepare a paradise here with wine and cup, for thither
were Paradise is, thou mayst arrive—or mayst not arrive.

F4 62

I must abjure the Balm of Life, I must,
Scared by some After-reckoning ta'en on trust,
Or lured with Hope of some Diviner Drink,
To fill the Cup--when crumbled into Dust!

HA 62b

Make thyself a heaven here with wine and cup,
For at that place where heaven is, thou mayst arrive, or mayst not.

Nic 383

Ô mon cœur! tu n'arriveras point à pénétrer les secrets énigmatiques (des cieux); tu ne parviendras jamais au point culminant que les intripides savants ont atteint. Résigne-toi donc à t'organiser ici-bas un paradis en faisant usage de la coupe et du vin, car là où est Ie paradis (futur), y arriveras-tu? n'y arriveras-tu pas?

P 786

To the word of the puzzle, O heart, soon or late thou attain'st not;
To the problem that's baffled the wise of old date thou attain'st not:
A heav'n, then, with winecup and wanton, here make for thyself,
For to Heaven up there thou attain'st or (please Fate) thou attain'st not.

Th 534

Can you not, Heart, the riddle's secret gain?
Nor make the subtlety of wise men plain?
Here make your Heaven with wine and cup; for you
The place where Heaven is may,—may not attain.

Wh 427

O heart! can'st thou the darksome riddle read,
Where wisest men have failed, wilt thou succeed?
Quaff wine, and make thy heaven here below,
Who knows if heaven above will be thy meed?
