Something I remembered from the Diamond Sutra (金剛経, 금강경) recently:
All conditioned phenomena
Are like a dream, an illusion, a bubble, a shadow
Like the dew, or like lightning
You should discern them like this
The term “conditioned phenomena” means all things that come into existence: people, thoughts, feelings, trends, planets, etc. Because it comes into existence, it will also fade. All good things must come to an end.
P.S. Thanks to Professor Charles Muller for posting his translations. 🙂
