thank you to brainyquote.com, goodreads.com

When someone is in adversity, the mask is torn off and reality remains.
*
“Air when agitated becomes wind 

*

“Constant dripping hollows out a stone.”
*
In infinity there is no center.
*
“All things keep on in everlasting motion,
Out of the infinite come the particles,
Speeding above, below, in endless dance.”
*

 

“Trees don't live in the sky, and clouds don't swim
In the salt seas, and fish don't leap in wheatfields,
Blood isn't found in wood, nor sap in rocks.
By fixed arrangement, all that live and grows
Submits to limit and restrictions.”

Lucretius
