The Sky Outlives Everything

"No human, nor any living thing, survives long under the eternal sky. The most beautiful women, the most learned men, even Mohammed, who heard Allah's own voice, all did wither and die. All is temporary. The sky outlives everything. even  Suffering."   

   --Bowa Johar, Balti poet


I found this quote in the book I am currently reading. (Three Cup of Tea by Greg Mortensen and David Oliver Relin.) It seemed fitting to me. If my life is lacking anything right now it is solidity. Nothing seems to remain constant. Everything changes.

This blog is intended to be a personal outlet. Feel free to visit, share your thoughts, tell me I am wrong. Together we will come to understanding, Inshallah.

thanks for that quote. it goes perfectly with a paper i'm writing and i think i'll use it! i'm curious to why your blog is titled what it is. you see, my paper is all about 'transience' and the temporariness of things. just thought that was coincidental.
