Think often of how quickly things pass by and disappear, both natural things and human works. Substance itself is like a river in constant flow, and the motion of things is constant change in infinite ways of changing. Almost nothing stands still.

And think about what is nearest to you — the profound abyss of the past and the profound abyss of the future — in both, everything disappears.
