This life passes as quickly as autumn clouds; family and friends are like passers-by in a market; the demon of death approaches like twilight’s shadow; what the future holds is like a translucent fish in cloudy waters; life’s experiences are like last night’s dreams; the pleasures of the senses, like an imaginary party. Meaningless activities are like waves lapping of the surface of the water.

— Padmasambhava, Guru Rinpoche
