‘There is nothing permanent except change.’
A new year has begun – so let’s tweak the Friday quotes – to spice it up in 2016 let’s play the old game of consequences, or whatever you call it over the Ocean?!
Each Friday quote should link…and off we go – I’ll begin!
(If you want to join in, just add one in a comment, and I will pick it up and carry on from there…)
‘…all that happens leaves its traces upon the earth by nightfall…’
Isabel Burt, TOXICS
There is a French quote : ‘Plus ca change (plus c’est la meme chose)’
The best translation of its meaning I found is that it is ‘used to express resigned acknowledgement of the fundamental immutability of human nature and institutions.’
So I will give my Friday quote a little direction henceforth – my aim is to show this quote in the literature that I love. From children’s literature, to plays, poetry, and philosophy. To show not only it working within the words, but in the writing community.
What was once said by Aristotle can probably be found in a version of its time in the latest kindle bestseller.
