Page 221 - There is a double becoming of perishable things and a double passing away. The coming together of all things brings one generation into being and destroys it; the other grows up and is scattered as things become divided. And these things never cease continually changing places, at one time all uniting in one through Love, at another each borne in different directions by the repulsion of Strife.
Page 149 - Herakleitos says somewhere that all things pass and naught abides ; and, comparing things to the current of a river, he says that you cannot step twice into the same stream
