What is

“Only in silence the word,
Only in dark the light,
Only in dying life:
Bright the hawk’s flight
On the empty sky.

—The Creation of Éa

Ursula K. Le Guin

 

Lao Tzy on the universe

 

 

“Beauty is the only thing that time cannot harm. Philosophies fall away like sand, creeds follow one another, but what is beautiful is a joy for all seasons, a possession for all eternity.”
– Oscar Wilde

 

 

 

Life is a flame that can burn fast and intense or slow and steadily. How you live is up to you. But you are here now and you will always be here now. What we do echoes in eternity (also Aurelius).
