If you realize that all things change,
there is nothing you will try to hold on to.
If you aren’t afraid of dying,
there is nothing you can’t achieve.
Trying to control the future
is like trying to take the master carpenter’s place.
When you handle the master carpenter’s tools,
chances are that you’ll cut yourself.
– Tao Te Ching, translated by Stephen Mitchell
Dryness promotes the formation of flower buds…flowering is, after all, not an aesthetic contribution, but a survival mechanism.
