"This world is transitory, like an autumnal cloud. The birth and death of beings is like watching a dance. The length of a being's life is like a lightening flash, coming swiftly and abruptly to an end, like water dashing over a steep precipice."
from Tibetan folk tales
"What is life? It is a flash of a firefly in the night.
It is the breath of a buffalo in the winter time.
It is the little shadow that runs across the grass
and loses itself in the sunset."

"The greater evolution is to see from another man's point of view also. By seeing from his point of view you do not lose your own: your own point of view is still there; but the other point of view is added to yours, therefore, your knowledge becomes greater. It means a greater stretching of the heart and sometimes the heart feels pain when you stretch it. But by stretching the heart and by making it larger and larger, you turn your heart into the sacred Book." Hazrat Inayat Khan
