Opposite Tensions — Heraclitus Quote

The attunement of the world is of opposite tensions, as is that of the harp and bow.

The road up and the road down is one and the same. The beginning and end are common.

That which is at variance with itself agrees with itself.

Cool things become warm, warm cools, moisture dries, the parched get wet. It scatters and gathers, it comes and goes.

Heraclitus (540–480)
