And He will come to us like the rain.
Bible, Hosea 6:3
Everything comes to an end, reader, it is an old truism to which may be added that not everything that lasts, lasts for long. This latter part is not readily admitted; on the contrary the idea that an air castle lasts longer than the very air of which it is made is hard to get out of a person’s head, and this is fortunate, otherwise the custom of making those almost eternal constructions might be lost.
Machado de Assis . Dom Casmurro (1899)
Pure and absolute truth can only be found beyond all its possible expressions; these expressions, as such, cannot claim the attributes of this truth, their relative remoteness from it is expressed by their differentiation and multiplicity, by which they are strictly limited.
Frithjof Schuon. The Transcendent Unity of Religions (1953)
The gods have their own rules.
If you want to be loved, be lovable.
Ovid. Ars Amatoria (The Art of Love), II, 107.
