“It is said an Eastern monarch once charged his wise men to invent him a sentence, to be ever in view, and which should be true and appropriate in all times and situations. They presented him the words: ‘And this, too, shall pass away.’ How much it expresses! How chastening in the hour of pride! How consoling in the depths of affliction!”

– Abe Lincoln, passing on his wisdom to the Wisconsin State Agricultural Society in 1859


This is what inspires the site: the idea of transience, which can be a life raft in those moments when you feel yourself drowning. Also an anchor when you feel yourself bubbling happily up to the surface – if you let it be. Either way, it’s an idea to cling to when you’re twentysomething. You have to constantly remind yourself you’re just a stroke away from 30.
