Like a dewdrop on a blade of grass ~ Buddha

All things move and change and are impermanent like clouds;
They may be likened to a flash of lightning.
They are like a dewdrop on a blade of grass, and deceptive like an empty fist;
They have no essence and no self, and lack intrinsic existence in every way.


Buddha

The Play in Full, 15.79
