You can’t step in the same river twice. Heraclitus

Heraclitus was an ancient Greek philosopher to whom this statement is often attributed.

I remember this quote because my dad wrote it in the visitor book at the end of a seaside holiday. Only he wrote it in ancient Greek. He was a teacher you see.

The translation lodged in my mind though.

Everything flows – all things change.
