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

The first time I heard this quote was from the movie Unfaithful. Can anyone actually tell me who said and/or what book it came from. I'm not even sure that this is the exact phrase. Anything would be helpful! THANKS

'Drink wine... This is life eternal... This is all that youth will give you... It is the season for wine, roses and drunken friends... Be happy for this moment... This moment is your life.'

The lines in the movie are from Omar Khayyam's poem Persian Love. Check verse 13. The wording is slightly different in the film but the ideas are from this poem.
