Quote

Burgeons with leaves again in the season of spring returning.
So one generation of men will grow while another dies.

Sur terre les humains passent comme les feuilles : si le vent fait tomber les unes sur le sol, la forêt vigoureuse, au retour du printemps, en fait pousser bien d'autres ; chez les hommes ainsi les générations l'une à l'autre succèdent.”
