It's Greek to me...................................

From Heraclitus the Obscure:
ποταμοῖσι τοῖσιν αὐτοῖσιν ἐμβαίνουσιν, ἕτερα καὶ ἕτερα ὕδατα ἐπιρρεῖ.
"Ever-newer waters flow on those who step into the same rivers."
τὰ ὄντα ἰέναι τε πάντα καὶ μένειν οὐδέν
"All entities move and nothing remains s
         Ποταμοῖς τοῖς αὐτοῖς ἐμβαίνομέν τε καὶ οὐκ ἐμβαίνομεν, εἶμέν τε καὶ οὐκ εἶμεν
         "We both step and do not step in the same rivers. We are and are not."

From Anaximander:

          Whence things have their origin,
          Thence also their destruction happens,
          According to necessity;
          For they give to each other justice and recompense
          For their injustice
          In conformity with the ordinance of Time.
