Heraclitus said: "You can n3v33r
step in the same river tw22ce."
I know of this
With each moOOoving embrace
the river caresses the pebbles
ssZzzZzleeping on its bank
It's flow never tamed,
the pebbles on their long journey
to far away seas.
the river is suddenly
°°° from stone to sand ...
~~~ from water to air )))
+++ from life to death ---
the voices from within whisper:
“We fear death, we shudder at life's instability, we grieve to see the flowers wilt again and again, and the leaves fall, and in our hearts we know that we, too, are transitory and will soon disappear. When artists create pictures and thinkers search for laws and formulate thoughts, it is in order to salvage something from the great dance of death, to make something last longer than we do.”
Hesse, H. 1930. Narcissus And Goldmund. Berlin: S. Fischer Verlag.
