Every good fortune,
Wives, friends, houses, lands,
All these gifts and riches ...

They are a dream,
A juggling act,
A traveling show!

A few days, and they are gone.

-Ashtavakra Gita 10:2
From "The Heart of Awareness: A Translation of the Ashtavakra Gita," by Thomas Byrom, 1990. Shambhala Publications, Inc., Boston.
