Permanence


Human life is momentary
Like a water bubble vanishing

Youth and wealth are temporary
Like clouds that are passing

Impermanent are all worldly relations
Permanent are truth and righteousness.

    We should seek to gather around us the things that are more than fleeting whims or diminishing returns.
    Things that have stood the time tested formula for happiness...true happiness. (Report) Reply
