10 thoughts on “Rise and fall and rise and fall

  1. Short and concise. And oh, so deep. And the older you get, the more you learn that “the more things change, the more they stay the same.” (I used to know that in the original French, where it sounds much more glamorous! But glamor is irrelevant anyway any more.)

  2. Yes, and how many times can a man turn his head
    And pretend that he just doesn’t see
    The answer, my friend, is blowing in the wind
    The answer is blowing in the wind
    One of my favourite songs from the sixties ‘blowin in the wind’.

    • I love Bob Dylan – he was a wonderful poet and that song is a favourite of mine too Len. We seem stuck in a loop as a species – So much “progress” with artificial intelligence and none with the realities of living and thriving as a collective. Politics is still the same farce as it was in Ancient Rome which is why Marcus Aurelius or any of the stoic wisdom is as fresh today as it was then.

  3. So powerful… short and concise but though provoking.. and I am pretty sure even after 1000 years in future, these words will still remain relevant because that’s how our system is and humans are; the only question is whether this world will remain habitable for the next 1000 years or not?
