Quote Me

In response to Scott’s Daily Prompt, Quote Me

A little explanation need for this one. The quote I always come back to is one from Frank Herbert’s Dune.

The only constant is change

I come back to this when times are tough, to remind me – nothing is forever. Even the hard times will end. But also to keep perspective – I always try and think – will I care about what I am worrying about in 10 years time. If not – it’s not worth the stress now! (I know that’s easier said than done.)

With that quote in mind here is a quick Haiku inspired by it.

Even the mountains
Are impermanent giants
The wise realise
