Sand castles in the sand: playing with impermanence.
“History is a child building a sand-castle by the sea, and that child is the whole majesty of man’s power in the world.” — attributed to Herakleitos of Ephesus, c. 500 B.C., known for his “panta rhei” philosophy of flow or transience.
“Sand Castles In The Sand.”
- Patrick: Ohhhh. What happened?
- SpongeBob: I’ll tell you what happened Patrick… I got carried away.
- Patrick: Me too… was it worth it?
- SpongeBob: No, no, it wasn’t. What started out as a fun dream turned into a horrible, brutal, nightmare. As the winds of time changed the silvery sands of these dunes to a new landscape, so let us hope that our own winds of change will change our spiritual dunes to a landscape of peace. Oh buddy, let’s never forget this lesson.
- Lifeguard: Let’s also not forget who's going to clean this place up.
