River Quotations

Time is the substance from which I am made. Time is a river which carries me along, but I am the river; it is a tiger that devours me, but I am the tiger; it is a fire that consumes me, but I am the fire.
Jorge Luis Borges

No man ever steps in the same river twice, for it's not the same river and he's not the same man. - Heraclitus
No man ever steps in the same river twice, for it's not the same river and he's not the same man.
Heraclitus

Time is a sort of river of passing events, and strong is its current; no sooner is a thing brought to sight than it is swept by and another takes its place, and this too will be swept away.
Marcus Aurelius

The river is constantly turning and bending and you never know where it's going to go and where you'll wind up. Following the bend in the river and staying on your own path means that you are on the right track. Don't let anyone deter you from that.
Eartha Kitt

If my ship sails from sight, it doesn't mean my journey ends, it simply means the river bends.
Enoch Powell
