“Life is the continuous coming together and pulling apart of things. A man’s sense of being and feeling, his pleasures and his pains, are but the casual, altogether temporary intermingling of this and that, compacted for a brief moment in time to become You. So one must honor this brevity with the playful seriousness it requires. For when this moment of mortality is loosed apart, the stuff a man is made of but becomes a new set of forms and feelings, and that You you hold so dear fades into remembrance alongside all the other long-lived gods.” - #Empedocles. At the precipice of #Etna. c.430 BCE. By #sagewaters.
