And never, never, to forget.

no better, no worse, no love, no hate, no fear, no anger, no joy.

or one can struggle fearfully against the River -
and the River just flows.

and the River just flows.

and the River just flows. There is nothing to do - and the River flows.
There is nothing to say - and the River flows.
There is nothing to think - and the River flows.
There is nothing to feel - and the River flows.
The River flows - and all else is our drama.
The River flows - and all else is our invention.
