“Life is as brief as lightning between clouds. ... Life is like a rainbow in the grass, / Even though it looks nice, / It has no real worth. ... Life is like the setting sun, / It looks strong and beautiful, / But before you know it, it is gone. ... Life is like a waterfall cascading from a high mountain, / Even though it makes a big sound, / It lasts only a moment then you pass it and it is gone.”
Nangsa Obum, Tibetan wise woman, hermit, Buddhist nun
