“The wise ones fashioned speech with their thought, sifting it as grain is sifted through a sieve.”
“Mystery creates wonder and wonder is the basis of man’s desire to understand.“
“So much of what we do is ephemeral and quickly forgotten, even by ourselves, so it’s gratifying to have something you have done linger in people’s memories.” –John Williams
For this weeks challenge, Ephemeral
I decided to dig into my archives and resurface an image I took a while ago with someone who will never return to my life. The moment that seemed to last forever was gone in such a short amount of time. These ephemeral moments make you appreciate what you have in that very second. The future can wait if only for a little longer.
“Happiness, true happiness, is an inner quality. It is a state of mind. If your mind is at peace, you are happy. If your mind is at peace, but you have nothing else, you can be happy. If you have everything the world can give – pleasure, possessions, power – but lack peace of mind, you can never be happy.”
“When you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it’s your world for the moment. I want to give that world to someone else. Most people in the city rush around so, they have no time to look at a flower. I want them to see it whether they want to or not.”
“Man is not man, but a wolf to those he does not know.” -Plautus
