the sums of things


Nothing in the entire universe ever perishes, believe me, but things vary, and adopt a new form.

The phrase “being born” is used for beginning to be something different from what one was before, while “dying” means ceasing to be the same. 
Though this thing may pass into that, and that into this, yet the sums of things remains unchanged.

The Metamorphoses
