DAY 14: #31DayAspiringPolyglot Challenge – Learning Persian (Fārsī)

گر صبر کنی٬ ز غوره حلوا سازی
gar sabr koni, ze γure halvā sāzi
“With time and art the leaf of a mulberry-tree becomes satin.”
Literally, “If you exercise patience, you may make a sweet-meat out of the sour grape.”

Ordering Food in Persian (Fārsī)

Today I learned that the sale and consumption of alcohol are illegal in Iran. Therefore, I couldn't order ‘a glass of wine' or a ‘pint of beer' in my pretend restaurant. What a bummer. Still, I made a simple script, so I won't starve!
