Quote of the day…

“Time is the substance from which I am made. Time is a river which carries me along, but I am the river; it is a tiger that devours me, but I am the tiger; it is a fire that consumes me, but I am the fire.”

~Jorge Luis Borges, A New Refutation of Time

  1. How do you interpret it Lindsey?

    I like this quote because it makes me think. It may be one of those that I interpret differently in different times of my life.

    What I take it to mean now… We all think we are limited by time, but we ourselves are time. We are the river of time that carries us through life. We should not fear time, the tiger, or the fire. If we are calm in our hearts there is nothing to fear.

    The fear of TIME passing and taking our youth is worse than the time itself. Have fun, life is a journey.


  3. Interesting.

    I like your perspective very much.
