cling loosely

Goethe said:

“To live within limits. To want one thing. Or a few things very much and love them dearly. Cling to them, survey them from every angle. Become one with them - that is what makes the poet, the artist, the human being.”

At the same time, we must let even the small things go that we become one with, for all of this is impermanent. Cling loosely.
