THINK ABOUT IT #8: Yasunari Kawabata

Time passed.  But time flows in many streams.  Like a river, an inner stream of time will flow rapidly at some places and sluggishly at others, or perhaps even stand hopelessly stagnant.  Cosmic time is the same for everyone, but human time differs with each person.  Time flows in the same way for all human beings; every human being flows through time in a different way.

Beauty and Sadness (1975, translated by H. HIBBERT)
