Vita brevis (Life is short), ars longa (& art long)

how much of this is temporary – the life of the composer? the piece of paper? the rose? the musical interpretation? the concept of beauty in multiple forms?

“The aphorism quotes the first two lines of the Aphorismi by the ancient Greek physician Hippocrates.”     Wikipedia

Vita brevis,
ars longa,
occasio praeceps,
experimentum periculosum,
iudicium difficile.

Life is short,
and art long,
opportunity fleeting,
experimentations perilous,
and judgment difficult.
