Since of all that is there is naught but empty wind in our hands
Since with all that is there is (also) nothing, the loss is slight
Reflect thou that all that is in the world is naught
Reflect thou that everything that is naught, is in the world


P 35

Since all that is in hand is nought but air,
Since all is nought but ruin and despair,
Think all that is is not, and whatsoe'er
In this our world is not, think it is there.

Th 54

Since All is unsubstantial as the air
And naught save loss and ruin; whatsoe'er
Exists in this world, think doth not exist,
And what on earth is not, imagine there.
