Thought of the Day

Ποταμοῖσι τοῖσι αὐτοῖσι ἐμβαίνομέν τε καὶ οὐκ ἐμβαίνομεν, εἶμέν τε καὶ οὐκ εἶμεν.

Heraclitus of Ephasus

Into the same river we both step and do not step. We both are and are not.


You sure it wasn't Yoda who said that?
It is a bit Yodaish. Some people have translated it, loosely: You can't step into the river twice. It's not the same river. You're not the same person.
