Sunday Dinner: Fleeting

~

“Exquisite beauty
is often hidden
in life’s fragile,
fleeting moments.”

.

John Mark Green

“If a beautiful thing were to remain beautiful

for all eternity, I’d be glad,

but all the same I’d look at it

with a colder eye.

I’d say to myself: You can look at it any time,

it doesn’t have to be today.”

.

Hermann Hesse

“Everything changes. The leaves, the weather,

the colour of your hair, the texture of your skin.

The feelings you have today –

whether they kill you or enthrall you –

won’t be the same tomorrow, so let go.

Celebrate. Enjoy. Nothing lasts,

except your decision to celebrate everything,

everyone, for the beauty that is there

within each moment, each smile,

each impermanent flicker of infinity.”

.

“That which is impermanent

attracts compassion.

That which is not provides wisdom.”

“Nostalgia is an illness
for those who haven’t realized
that today
is tomorrow’s nostalgia.”
