Fragment On Nature by Goethe

Nature!
We are encompassed by her;
impossible to escape from her
and impossible to come nearer to her.
The most unnatural also is nature.
Who sees her not on all sides
sees her truly nowhere.
At each moment she starts upon a long, long journey
and at each moment reaches her end.

She lets every child enlarge upon her,
every fool judge her,
thousands pass heedlessly over her seeing nothing;
yet she has friends among all
and has her recompense from all.

Even in resisting her laws one obeys them;
and one works with her
even in desiring to work against her.
Love is her crown.
Only through love does one come near to her.
She has isolated all things
so she may bring all together.
All is eternally present in her,
for she knows neither past nor future.
For her, the present is eternity.

Beautiful :P thanks,
The
push and pull
give and take
of opposing appearances
all so
perfectly balanced
living the wildest of dreams
empty and full
dead and alive
appearing
disappearing
simultaneously
birth and death
arising
receding
in each new second
of
this
now
eternal
just
this
wonderful
this
all-ways

:P
I love talking about nothing ...
it is the only thing i know anything about.
