Wisdom of the Ancients

On this auspicious day of Sri Krishna Janmastami, the sacred Birthday of Lord Sri Krishna, allow me to leave you with a couple of nice quotes.

“Temporal blessings pass like a dream, beauty fades like a flower, the longest life disappears like a flash. Our existence may be likened to the bubble that forms on the surface of water.”
– Niti Shastras (Moral Stanzas)

like a drop:

“This life is tottering like a drop of water on a lotus petal.
– Govinda Dasa Kaviraja”, from ‘Bhajahu Re Mana’

“For this reason the enlightened person should endeavor only for the minimum necessities of life while in the world of names. He should be intelligently fixed and never endeavor for unwanted things, being competent to perceive practically that all such endeavors are merely hard labour for nothing.”
– Srimad Bhagavatam, 2.2.3., A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada
