“Ex nihilo nihil fit” or “Nothing Comes from Nothing” is a famous quote by the Presocratic philosopher Parmenides. Even though in life things happen out of doing something, does one dare to dream to do nothing?
I also thought of the lyrics Maria (Julie Andrews) sings in the Sound of Music “Nothing comes from nothing. Nothing ever could. So somewhere in my youth or childhood. I must have done something good.”
I yearn for the day to do absolutely nothing
I suddenly find that minute of nothing
And don’t like the feeling at all
The feeling of nothing is not great at all
Especially not when you waiting in anticipation
Waiting for news for so many things
You tell yourself it’s fine
To appreciate life, life in itself
Even in the moments of nothing
In the moments of nothing, you still breath
In the moments of nothing, you are alive
You are alive with possibilities!
