All things pass

by  Lao-Tzu  (6th century BC)
 
 

All things pass
a sunrise does not last all morning
all things pass 
a cloudburst does not last all day
all things pass 
nor a sunset all night
all things pass
earth... sky.....thunder
mountain....water....... wind
fire.......lake
All these things  change
and do not last
does a man's vision
does a man's illusion last?
Take things as they come
all things pass.
 

(translated by Timothy Leary)
