The sun endures. The moon endures. Some will even make the case that the soul endures. There are few things in this natural world than can make that claim. Even the greatest architecture or accomplishments of man has no chance against the ravages of time and the way of nature. Pity those that are un-natural to the Dao for they have no chance whatsoever of enduring. If you choose to align yourself with that, you are asking for trouble sir.
