WPC: Temporary


Thus shall you think of all this fleeting world:

as a star at dawn, a bubble in a stream;

a flash of lightning in a summer cloud,

a flickering lamp, a phantom, and a dream.



Buddha Shakyamuni, The Diamond Sutra



“Letting go gives us freedom,
and freedom is the only condition for happiness.
If, in our heart, we still cling to anything –
anger, anxiety, or possessions –
we cannot be free.”

Thich Nhat Hanh

“…for you know that soft is stronger than hard,
water stronger than rock,
love stronger than force.”
