"time is a point, substance is flux, perception dull, the soul a whirl, the body a stream, the soul a dream and vapour."
(marcus aurelius, meditations, book II, 17).
"... the peculiar beauty of fruit: figs, when they are ripe gape open, and in the ripe olives the being near to rot- tenness adds a peculiar beauty of fruit."
(aurelius, book III, 1).
"everything harmonizes with me which is harmonious to thee, o universe. everything is fruit to me which they seasons bring, o nature."
(aurelius, book IV, 23).

"forget sleep
forget wheeling dancers or birds
and one cloud paused as if tying a sandal
all things forget"
(terri witek, impermanence fragments, stanza 2)

"... shew me that I am so little ..."
(juliana of norwich, revelations of divine love, 18)

"strik[e] unbounded space and hear it reverberate ... one being, all [forms of] being; one time, all times." (zen master do ̄gen, sho ̄bo ̄genzo ̄, 6)
"my whole being is [like] the mouth of a bell suspended in empty space."
(do ̄gen, 28)
