Nothing is so permanent as a temporary government program. — Milton Friedman

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Frederick Soddy

The ruling passion of the age is to convert wealth into debt in order to
derive a permanent future income from it - to convert wealth that perishes
into debt that endures, debt that does not rot, costs nothing to maintain,
and brings in perennial interest. — Frederick Soddy

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Danielle Cormack

In this life nothing is permanent. Joy, sorrow, pain, pleasure - everything is in a constant state of change. Thankfully. — Danielle Cormack

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Peter Johnston

Introducing a spelling test to a student by saying, 'Let's see how many words you know,' is different from saying, 'Let's see how many words you know already.' It is only one word, but the already suggests that any words the child knows are ahead of expectation and, most important, that there is nothing permanent about what is known and not known. — Peter Johnston

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Dada Bhagwan

Nothing can get spoilt as long the mind is steady, and when it becomes restless, it will spoil. God doesn't give or take from anyone, but because God is in the permanent blissful state, all external actions will go well when one's mind is steadied in Him. — Dada Bhagwan

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Ovid

All things change, nothing is extinguished. There is nothing in the whole world which is permanent. Everything flows onward; all things are brought into being with a changing nature; the ages themselves glide by in constant movement. — Ovid

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Ruth Ozeki

She told me it's called the Maka Hanya Haramita Shingyo,69 which means something like the Great Most Excellent Wisdom Heart Sutra. The only part I remember goes like this: Shiki fu i ku, ku fu i shiki.70 It's pretty abstract. Old Jiko tried to explain it to me, and I don't know if I understood it correctly or not, but I think it means that nothing in the world is solid or real, because nothing is permanent, and all things - including trees and animals and pebbles and mountains and rivers and even me and you - are just kind of flowing through for the time being. — Ruth Ozeki

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Thich Nhat Hanh

Life is miraculous, even in its suffering. Without suffering, life would not be possible. There is nothing permanent, and there is no separate self. Neither is there impermanence or no-self. When we see life deeply, there is no death. Therefore, it isn't necessary to say everlasting life. — Thich Nhat Hanh

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Sebastien Foucan

Nothing on this planet is permanent, and this is why I believe there can be no such thing as possession. — Sebastien Foucan

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Yoko Ono

I saw that nothing was permanent. You don't want to possess anything that is dear to you because you might lose it — Yoko Ono

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Austin Osman Spare

A process of self-deception to satisfy and summarily persuade yourself of righteousness. What one among us has any excuse but self-love? We do not create or confess a morality that is convenient, that lends itself to growth, and remains simple, that allows transgression without excuse or punishment. It would be wise and commonsense to do so, whatever the state of affairs in your mind. Nature eventually denies that which it affirms: Through permanent association with the same moral code we help desire to transgress. Desire of those things denied, the more you restrict the more you sin, but desire equally desires preservation of moral instinct, so desire is its own conflict (and weakly enough). Have no fear, the Bull of earth has long had nothing to do with your unclean conscience, your stagnant ideas of morality. The microbe alone would seem without fear! — Austin Osman Spare

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Pema Chodron

The Buddhist explanation is that we feel this uneasiness because we're always trying to get ground under our feet and it never quite works. We're always looking for a permanent reference point, and it doesn't exist. Everything is impermanent. Everything is always changing - fluid, unfixed, and open. Nothing is pin-down-able the way we'd like it to be. This is not actually bad news, but we all seem to be programmed for denial. We have absolutely no tolerance for uncertainty. It seems that insecurity — Pema Chodron

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Eleanor Roosevelt

I wonder if one of the penalties of growing older is that you become more and more conscious that nothing is very permanent. — Eleanor Roosevelt

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Gyalwa Dokhampa

When we hold on too tightly to our attachments we are trying to keep them just as they are, to make them permanent. But nothing in life is permanent. — Gyalwa Dokhampa

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Heraclitus

All things flow, nothing abides. You cannot step into the same river twice, for the waters are continually flowing on. Nothing is permanent except change. — Heraclitus

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Mikhail Bakunin

In every State, the government is nothing but a permanent conspiracy on the part of the minority against the majority, which it enslaves and fleeces. — Mikhail Bakunin

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Rohit Shetty

I don't go for holidays or celebrate my success because I know nothing is permanent. I don't let it get to me - like I am India's top director with too many hits. If that happens, I might lose the connect with my audience. The day I go wrong, they will run away from me. I want to be like an assistant director all my life. — Rohit Shetty

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Heraclitus

there is nothing permanent except change-- — Heraclitus

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Jan-Philipp Sendker

To live means to suffer. Nothing is permanent. — Jan-Philipp Sendker

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Judith Viorst

We grow because the clamorous, permanent presence of our children forces us to put their needs before ours. We grow because our love for our children urges us to change as nothing else in our lives has the power to do. We grow (if we're willing to grow, that is: not every parent is willing) because being a parent helps us stop being a child. — Judith Viorst

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Dogen

When you ride in a boat and watch the shore, you might assume that the shore is moving. But when you keep your eyes closely on the boat, you can see that the boat moves. Similarly, if you examine many things with a confused mind, you might suppose that your mind and nature are permanent. But when you practice intimately and return to where you are, it will be clear that there is nothing that has unchanging self. — Dogen

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Gustave Flaubert

I lead a bitter life, devoid of all external joy and in which I have nothing to keep me going but a sort of permanent rage, which weeps at times from impotence, but which is constant. — Gustave Flaubert

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Durgesh Satpathy

Nothing is permanent in my mysterious world, even my moments of belief - Jenifer — Durgesh Satpathy

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Dinaw Mengestu

The MFA program did one great thing for me: It taught me how to be a better reader and critic. Nothing I wrote during my time at Columbia remains - but learning how to really deconstruct a work of fiction - that, of course, is a permanent part of me now. — Dinaw Mengestu

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By George MacDonald

There are who are so pitiful over the poor man, that, finding they cannot lift him beyond the reach of the providence which intends there shall always be the poor on the earth, will do for him nothing at all. "Where is the use?" they say. They treat their money like their children, and would not send it into a sad house. If they had themselves no joys but their permanent ones, where would the hearts of them be? — George MacDonald

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Marilynne Robinson

Everything that falls upon the eye is apparition, a sheet dropped over the world's true workings. The nerves and the brain are tricked, and one is left with dreams that these specters loose their hands from ours and walk away, the curve of the back and the swing of the coat so familiar as to imply that they should be permanent fixtures of the world, when in fact nothing is more perishable. — Marilynne Robinson

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Marcus Aurelius

Reflect frequently upon the instability of things, and how very fast the scenes of nature are shifted. Matter is in perpetual flux. Change is always and everywhere at work; it strikes through causes and effects, and leaves nothing fixed and permanent. — Marcus Aurelius

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Isaac Asimov

There is nothing your knife handlers can do in the way of rioting and demonstrating that will have any permanent effect as long as, in the extremity, there is an army equipped with kinetic, chemical, and neurological weapons that is willing to use them against your people. You can get all the downtrodden and even all the respectables on your side, but you must somehow win over the security forces and the Imperial army or at least seriously weaken their loyalty to the rulers. — Isaac Asimov

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By T. S. Eliot

As things are, and as fundamentally they must always be, poetry is not a career, but a mug's game. No honest poet can ever feel quite sure of the permanent value of what he has written: He may have wasted his time and messed up his life for nothing. — T. S. Eliot

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Martin Luther King Jr.

If physical death is the price that I must pay to free my white brothers and sisters from a permanent death of the spirit, then nothing can be more redemptive. — Martin Luther King Jr.

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Orson Welles

Future shock is a sickness which comes from too much change in too short a time. It's the feeling that nothing is permanent anymore. — Orson Welles

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Jessica Sorensen

Nothing can be erased in life. Life is permanent, from the breaths we take to the decisions we make. — Jessica Sorensen

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Eric Alterman

The ability of the 1 percent to buy politicians and regulators is nothing new in American politics - just as inequality has been a permanent part of our economic system. This is true of virtually all political and economic systems. — Eric Alterman

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Richard Selzer

Cutting for Stone is nothing short of masterful -a riveting tale of love, medicine, and the complex dynamic of twin brothers. It is beautifully conceived and written. The settings are wonderfully pictorial. There is no doubt in my mind that Cutting for Stone will endure in the permanent literature of our time. — Richard Selzer

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By D.H. Lawrence

Money is a sort of instinct. It's a sort of property of nature in a person to make money. It's nothing you do. It's no trick you play. It's a sort of permanent accident of your own nature; once you start, you make money, and you go on ... But you've got to begin ... You've got to get in. You can do nothing if you are kept outside. You've got to beat your way in. Once you've done that, you can't help it! — D.H. Lawrence

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Haley Pullos

I try to remind myself that nothing is permanent. — Haley Pullos

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Girdhar Joshi

There is nothing called a permanent love or a temporary love. Love is love. Love may be for a smaller duration or a longer duration. — Girdhar Joshi

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Philip Roth

All I can tell you with certainty is that I, for one, have no self, and that I am unwilling or unable to perpetrate upon myself the joke of a self ... What I have instead is a variety of impersonations I can do, and not only of myself - a troupe of players that I have internalised, a permanent company of actors that I can call upon when a self is required ... I am a theater and nothing more than a theater. — Philip Roth

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Arthur Conan Doyle

I wish you to understand that there is one man, and only one, for each woman, and one woman only for each man. When those two meet they fly together and are one through all the endless chain of existence. Until they meet all unions are mere accidents which have no meaning. Sooner or later each couple becomes complete. It may not be here. It may be in the next sphere where the sexes meet as they do on earth. Or it may be further delayed. But every man and every woman has his or her affinity, and will find it. Of earthly marriages perhaps one in five is permanent. The others are accidental. Real marriage is of the soul and spirit. Sex actions are a mere external symbol which mean nothing and are foolish, or even pernicious, when the thing which they should symbolize is wanting. Am I clear? — Arthur Conan Doyle

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Louis O. Kelso

People are hungering for property - for a secure, permanent and independent link with spaceship earth that ownership represents and which only ownership can protect or defend. It is humiliating to possess nothing, to own nothing, and hence to produce nothing and to count for nothing. — Louis O. Kelso

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Siegfried Kracauer

There is no one who has no leisure time at all. The office is not a permanent sanctuary, and Sundays are an institution. Thus, in principle, during those beautiful hours of free time everyone would have the opportunity to rouse himself into real boredom. But although one wants to do nothing, things are done to one: the world makes sure that one does not find oneself. And even if one perhaps isn't interested in it, the world itself is much too interested for one to find the peace and quiet necessary to be as thoroughly bored with the world as it ultimately deserves. — Siegfried Kracauer

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Eric Felten

Our modern, rootless times do seem to be a particularly inhospitable environment for loyalty. We come and go so relentlessly that our friendships can't but come and go too. What sort of loyalty is there in the age of Facebook, when friendship is a costless transaction, a business of flip reciprocity ... Friendship held together by nothing more permanent than hyperlinks is hardly the stuff of selfless fidelity. — Eric Felten

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Sara Raasch

To break one's mask in the presence of someone you reject is an act of permanent separation. To say that you are finished with them in your life, so much so that you do not worry about them seeing your true face. You'll never see them again, so your secrets are nothing in their hands. — Sara Raasch

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Dalai Lama

Nothing is permanent. — Dalai Lama

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Woody Allen

David: And you think it can just evaporate? Even if at one time they loved one another?
Marx: That's one of the sad truths of existence. Nothing in this world is permanent. Even the characters created by the great Shakespeare will, in millions of years, cease to exist - when the universe runs its course and the lights go out. — Woody Allen

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Vladimir Nabokov

She had spent all her life in feeling miserable; this misery was her native element; its fluctuations, its varying depths, alone save her the impression of moving and living. What bothers me is that a sense of misery, and nothing else, is not enough to make a permanent soul. My enormous and morose Mademoiselle is all right on earth but impossible in eternity. — Vladimir Nabokov

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Andrew McKillop

Nuclear power is a permanent disaster. Producing its uranium fuel is an environmental disaster - now tucked and folded over the horizon in mostly-poor countries where miners are paid $5 a day and unprotected against radiation. Building reactors is a financial disaster, always shifted to government subsidies. Waste disposal is both an environmental and economic disaster. When the fateful time comes to decommission the Doomsday Machines, after the easy 10-year life extensions run out, this is another economic disaster. But when a reactor becomes what it really is - the most massive Dirty Bomb you or Bin Laden (radhi Allah anhu) can imagine - the nuclear disaster will be hard to yank out of the media, quicktime, and carry on like nothing ever happened. — Andrew McKillop

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Akkineni Nagarjuna

That which arises dependent on something is not in the least that thing, neither is it different from it. Therefore, it is neither permanent or nothing. — Akkineni Nagarjuna

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Dashama Konah Gordon

As with all things in the physical plane, nothing is permanent, and the only thing we can truly count on is change. Things come and go, people are born and die and move in and out of our lives. The dreams and goals of today will one day either materialize or evolve into something different with time. If we become rigidly attached to any of this, we set ourselves up for the inevitable suffering that will ensue when the thing, person or idea flows out of our lives, or our desire for it shifts. — Dashama Konah Gordon

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Jayson Engay

I just wanna say nothing is permanent in this world, only change — Jayson Engay

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Algernon Sidney

Many things are unknown to the wisest, and the best men can never wholly divest themselves of passions and affections ... nothing can or ought to be permanent but that which is perfect. — Algernon Sidney

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Dharma Mittra

Everything is perfect and nothing is permanent. — Dharma Mittra

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Timothy Pina

Ben Says: The good news is ... nothing ever is permanent. You are the artist of your life ... so take your brush & paint it bright!
Timothy Pina
Bullying Ben — Timothy Pina

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Heraclitus

There is nothing permanent in the world except change. — Heraclitus

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By W. Somerset Maugham

Nothing in the world is permanent, and we're foolish when we ask anything to last, but surely we're still more foolish not to take delight in it while we have it. If change is of the essence of existence one would have thought it only sensible to make it the premise of our philosophy. — W. Somerset Maugham

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Louise Penny

Life is loss. But out of that, as the book stresses, comes freedom. If we can accept that nothing is permanent, and change is inevitable, if we can adapt, then we're going to be happier people. — Louise Penny

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Conor Oberst

There was this book I read and loved, The story of a ship Who sailed around the world and found That nothing else exists Beyond its own two sails And wooden shell And what is held within. All else is sure to pass. We clutch and grasp And debate what's truly permanent. — Conor Oberst

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Ron Rash

But nothing is solid and permanent. Our lives are raised on the shakiest foundations. You don't need to read history books to know that. You only have to know the history of your own life. — Ron Rash

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Maharishi Mahesh Yogi

Nothing from outside can stop a man from enjoying lasting peace and permanent joy in life, for it is the essential nature of his own soul. — Maharishi Mahesh Yogi

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Peter Buffett

Mistakes are very seldom permanent, most of them can be fixed with less difficulty and drama than one imagines, and there's nothing shameful about them. There is, however, something sad and limiting about the fear of making them. — Peter Buffett

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Joyce Carol Oates

The institution of marriage is just formalizing an emotion, an attempt to make it seem permanent. The emotion will last or it won't last; nothing can guarantee it. — Joyce Carol Oates

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Edward De Bono

Democracy is an excellent way of ensuring that nothing much gets done. There are always interests that might get trampled upon [and no elected politician would wish to make permanent enemies by trampling upon others' interests]. — Edward De Bono

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Alan Moore

By connecting to nowhere you must in turn connect to everywhere, in the course of which becoming wise. Nothing is permanent, but anything is possible. Everything dies, yet beauty and joy endure. We are incredibly powerful and infinitely weak. Again and again these paradoxes repeat, like colors of yarn in an elaborate woven rug. There — Alan Moore

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Peter Popham

BUDDHISM teaches that nothing is permanent, nothing is fixed, all is in flux. — Peter Popham

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Diane Keaton

Nothing is ever the same. Nothing is permanent. Nothing can be trusted to be there. Nothing is safe, including home. Why lie to yourself? Every day we leave something, someone, some observation behind. — Diane Keaton

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Bernadette Roberts

Since the moment of self-consciousness comes to a permanent end - and a new journey begins- is such a decisive stroke or milestone in the contemplative life, I can only speculate why so little has been said of this breakthrough; in fact , I may never get over the silence on the part of writers who say nothing about this second movement. — Bernadette Roberts

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Camila Cabello

Take a deep breath, listen to your favorite song and realize everything is gonna be okay, nothing is permanent. — Camila Cabello

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Ilchi Lee

Change is the very nature of Nature. if there's one thing that doesn't change, it is the fact that everything changes. In the Korean tradition of Tao, this is called impermanence. The teaching about impermanence can be summarized like this: Anything that has a beginning must have an end. Anything that is created will change. Impermanence is the very nature of things. Realizing that nothing is permanent is the true beginning of enlightenment. Suffering comes from attachment that wants to hold something permanently that is not permanent in its intrinsic nature. Awakening to the truth of impermanence frees you from attachment. — Ilchi Lee

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Heraclitus

Nothing endures but change. There is nothing permanent except change. All is flux, nothing stays still. — Heraclitus

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Eckhart Tolle

In this way, a permanent energy field of a pure and high frequency will arise between you. No illusion, no pain, no conflict, nothing that is not you, and nothing that is not love can survive in it. This represents the the fulfillment of the divine transpersonal purpose of your relationship. — Eckhart Tolle

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Moshe Feldenkrais

Nothing is permanent about our behavior patterns except our belief that they are so. — Moshe Feldenkrais

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Peter De Vries

I believe that man must learn to live without those consolations called religious, which is own intelligence must by now have told him belong to the childhood of the race. Philosophy can really give us nothing permanent to believe either; it is too rich in answers, each canceling out the rest. The quest for Meaning is foredoomed. Human life 'means' nothing. But this is not to say that it is not worth living. What does a Debussy Arabesque 'mean,' or a rainbow or a rose? A man delights in all of these, knowing himself to be no more
a wisp of music and a haze of dreams dissolving against the sun. Man has only his own two feet to stand on, his own human trinity to see him through: Reason, Courage, and Grace. And the first plus the second equals the third. — Peter De Vries

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Trish Doller

Nothing is permanent. Anger passes. Stupidity is usually temporary. And even the best things in life can't last forever. ~Matt — Trish Doller

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Paulo Coelho

Flowers teach us that nothing is permanent: not their beauty, not even the fact that they will inevitably wilt, because they will still give new seeds.
Remember this when you feel joy, pain, or sadness.
Everything passes, grows old, dies, and is reborn. — Paulo Coelho

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Ross McKitrick

The bottom line for Canada is that Kyoto will precipitate a recession that will cause a permanent reduction in employment, income and the size of our economy. And if global warming is going to happen Kyoto will do nothing whatsoever to prevent it or even slow it down. Why are we still considering it? — Ross McKitrick

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By T. S. Eliot

A wrong attitude towards nature implies, somewhere, a wrong attitude towards God, and that the consequence is an inevitable doom. For a long enough time we have believed in nothing but the values arising in a mechanized, commercialized, urbanized way of life: it would be as well for us to face the permanent conditions upon which God allows us to live upon this planet. — T. S. Eliot

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Charlie Chaplin

Nothing is permanent in this wicked world, not even our troubles. — Charlie Chaplin

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Francis De Sales

Form often this good thought, that we are walking in this world between Paradise and Hell, and that our last step will place us in an eternal dwelling. We do not know which step will be our last, and so, in order to make our last step well, we must try to make all the others well.
O holy and unending eternity! Blessed is he who thinks of you. Yes, for what do we play here in this world but a children's game for who knows how many days? It would be nothing whatever, if it were not the passage to eternity.
On this account, therefore, we must pay attention to the time we have to dwell here below, and to all our occupations, so as to employ them in the conquest of the permanent good. — Francis De Sales

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Megan McCafferty

I thought Marcus was going to be in my life forever. Then I thought I was wrong. Now he's back. But this time I know what's certain: Marcus will be gone again, and back again and again and again because nothing is permanent. Especially people. Strangers become friends. Friends become lovers. Lovers become strangers. Strangers become friends once more, and over and over. Tomorrow, next week, fifty years from now, I know I'll get another one-word postcard from Marcus, because this one doesn't have a period signifying the end of the sentence.
Or the end of anything at all. — Megan McCafferty

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Daniel Webster

Nothing of character is really permanent but virtue and personal worth. — Daniel Webster

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Ram Sai Nag

Once up on a time she was a heroine who used to cry with glycerine. Now she can cry without glycerine. Nothing is permanent in this world, — Ram Sai Nag

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Gregory Maguire

It's the only condition I know. Bitter Love, Loneliness, contempt for corruption, blind hope. It's where I live. A permanent state of bereavement. This is nothing new. — Gregory Maguire

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Munia Khan

Nothing is perpetual in this world. Not even your everlasting soul! — Munia Khan

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche

Seeing that nothing is solid or permanent you begin to make yourself at home in the unknown. — Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By C.S. Lewis

If people do not believe in permanent marriage, it is perhaps better that they should live together unmarried than that they should make vows they do not mean to keep. It is true that by living together without marriage they will be guilty (in Christian eyes) of fornication. But one fault is not mended by adding another; unchastity is not improved by adding perjury. The idea that 'being in love' is the only reason for remaining married really leaves no room for marriage as a contract or promise at all. If love is the whole thing, then the promise can add nothing; and if it adds nothing, then it should not be made. — C.S. Lewis

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By David Ames Wells

... it will appear that there is no such thing as fixed capital; there is nothing useful that is very old except the precious metals, and all life consists in the conversion of forms. The only capital which is of permanent value is immaterial--the experience of generations and the development of science. — David Ames Wells

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By S.F. Mazhar

I agree," Skyler replied. "There's nothing funny about it." He pointed to
the cottage. "The house is unoccupied; we have permanent residents
looking for a place to stay." He held up both hands. "What's the problem?"

"The problem?" Ella asked, with a raised eyebrow. "I think the problem
is six-foot tall, has black hair, green eyes and the ability to kick your ass
across Salvador. — S.F. Mazhar

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Richard Ford

Real mystery - the very reason to read (and certainly write) any book - was to them a thing to dismantle, distill and mine out into rubble they could tyrannize into sorry but more permanent explanations; monuments to themselves, in other words. In my view all teachers should be required to stop teaching at age thirty-two and not allowed to resume until they're sixty-five, so that they can live their lives, not teach them away - live lives full of ambiguity and transience and regret and wonder, be asked to explain nothing in public until very near the end when they can't do anything else.
Explaining is where we all get into trouble. — Richard Ford

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Debasish Mridha

What is yours today, you will lose some day; nothing is permanent, so don't make it a big deal. — Debasish Mridha

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Jason Mott

Everything lasts forever," Ava said quietly as though she were making the statement to herself rather than to her father. "Older people always think that things like this can't last. But that's not the way it is anymore. Things can last forever and ever now because of the internet. Everything is saved somewhere. Everything is permanent. Nothing dies anymore." "That's...insightful, — Jason Mott

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Joseph Jaworski

One of the great mysteries of our current state of consciousness is how we can live in a world where absolutely nothing is fixed, and yet perceive a world of 'fixedness.' But once we start to see reality more as it is, we realize that nothing is permanent, so how could the future be fixed? How could we live in anything but a world of continual possibility? The realization allows us to feel more alive. — Joseph Jaworski

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Chris Baty

In the context of novel writing, this means you should lower the bar from "best-seller" to "would not make someone vomit." Exuberant imperfection encourages you to write uncritically, to experiment, to break your time-honored rules of writing just to see what happens. In a first draft, nothing is permanent, and everything is fixable. So stay loose and flexible, and keep your expectations very, very low. — Chris Baty

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Stephenie Meyer

When we were five, they asked us what we wanted to be when we grew up. Our answers were thing like astronaut, president, or in my case ... princess.
When we were ten, they asked again and we answered - rock star, cowboy, or in my case, gold medalist. But now that we've grown up, they want a serious answer. Well, how 'bout this: who the hell knows?!
This isn't the time to make hard and fast decisions, its time to make mistakes. Take the wrong train and get stuck somewhere chill. Fall in love - a lot. Major in philosophy 'cause there's no way to make a career out of that. Change your mind. Then change it again, because nothing is permanent.
So make as many mistakes as you can. That way, someday, when they ask again what we want to be ... we won't have to guess. We'll know.
[from the movie] — Stephenie Meyer

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Ruth Ozeki

...nothing in the world is solid or real, because nothing is permanent, and all things---including trees and animals and pebbles and mountains and rivers and me and you---are just flowing through for the time being. — Ruth Ozeki

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By A.E. Stallings

Nothing is more permanent than the temporary. — A.E. Stallings

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By May Sarton

Am I too old, perhaps, ever to take in another's life to share with mine on a permanent basis? If so, I must make do with what I have ... and what I have is a great richness of friends and a positively ardent love of nature. Not nothing! — May Sarton

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Charlie Chaplin

Nothing in life is permanent, not even one's troubles. — Charlie Chaplin

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Lisa See

Nothing in the world is permanent. The only permanent thing is impermanence. — Lisa See

Nothing Is Permanent Quotes By Albert Camus

Analysis of rebellion leads at least to the suspicion that, contrary to the postulates of contemporary thought, a human nature does exist, as the Greeks believed. Why rebel if there is nothing permanent in oneself worth preserving? ... Rebellion, though apparently negative, since it creates nothing, is profoundly positive in that it reveals the part of man which must always be defended. — Albert Camus
