On impermanence...


Wabi sabi acknowledges three things: "nothing is perfect, nothing lasts, and nothing is finished." ~Richard Powell

The temple bell stops but I still hear the sound coming out of the flowers. ~Matsuo Basho

A warrior chooses a path with heart, any path with heart, and follows it; and then he rejoices and laughs. ~Carlos Castaneda

The most unfair thing about life is the way it ends. I mean, life is tough. It takes up a lot of your time. What do you get at the end of it? A Death! What’s that, a bonus? I think the life cycle is all backwards. You should die first, get it out of the way. Then you live in an old age home. You get kicked out when you’re too young, you get a gold watch, you go to work. You work forty years until you’re young enough to enjoy your retirement. You do drugs, alcohol, you party, you get ready for high school. You go to grade school, you become a kid, you play, you have no responsibilities, you become a little baby, you go back into the womb, you spend your last nine months floating …and you finish off as an orgasm. ~George Carlin
