„Heaven and Earth exist for ever:
Mountains and rivers never change.
But herbs and trees in perpetual rotation
Are renovated and withered by the dews and frosts:
And Man the wise, Man the divine—
Shall he alone escape this law?
Fortuitously appearing for a moment in the World
He suddenly departs, never to return.“

—  Tao Yuanming Chinese poet 365 - 427

Substance, Shadow, and Spirit, "Substance speaks to Shadow" (translation by A. Waley)
In A Hundred and Seventy Chinese Poems (1919), 'Poems By Tao Ch'ien', p. 106
Original: (zh) 天地长不没,山川无改时。
草木得常理,霜露荣悴之。
谓人最灵智,独复不如兹。
适见在世中,奄去靡归期。
奚觉无一人,亲识岂相思。
但余平生物,举目情凄洏。
我无腾化术,必尔不复疑。
愿君取吾言,得酒莫苟辞。
Kontext: Heaven and Earth exist for ever:
Mountains and rivers never change.
But herbs and trees in perpetual rotation
Are renovated and withered by the dews and frosts:
And Man the wise, Man the divine—
Shall he alone escape this law?
Fortuitously appearing for a moment in the World
He suddenly departs, never to return.
How can he know that the friends he has left
Are missing him and thinking of him?
Only the things that he used remain;
They look upon them and their tears flow.
Me no magical arts can save,
Though you may hope for a wizard's aid.
I beg you listen to this advice—
When you can get wine, be sure to drink it.

„With equal sweetness the commissioned hours
Shed light and dew upon both weeds and flowers.“

—  Margaret Fuller American feminist, poet, author, and activist 1810 - 1850

Life Without and Life Within (1859), The Thankful and the Thankless
Kontext: With equal sweetness the commissioned hours
Shed light and dew upon both weeds and flowers.
The weeds unthankful raise their vile heads high,
Flaunting back insult to the gracious sky;
While the dear flowers, wht fond humility,
Uplift the eyelids of a starry eye
In speechless homage, and, from grateful hearts,
Perfume that homage all around imparts.

To watch and then to lose,
To see my bright ones disappear,
Drawn up like morning dews.“

The moon, sweet regent of the sky,
Silvered the walls of Cumnor Hall
And many an oak that grew thereby.“

Emperor Has No Clothes Award acceptance speech (2003)
Kontext: Schizophrenics have a whole lot of trouble telling the level of abstraction of a story. They're always biased in the direction of interpreting things more concretely than is actually the case. You would take a schizopohrenic and say, "Okay, what do apples, bananas and oranges have in common?" and they would say, "They all are multi-syllabic words."
You say "Well, that's true. Do they have anything else in common?" and they say, "Yes, they actually all contain letters that form closed loops."
This is not seeing the trees instead of the forest, this is seeing the bark on the trees, this very concreteness.
