Musical Interlude: Hans Zimmer, "Time"

Hans Zimmer, "Time"

"You would measure time the measureless and the immeasurable.
You would adjust your conduct and even direct the 
course of your spirit according to hours and seasons.
Of time you would make a stream upon whose
bank you would sit and watch its flowing.
Yet the timeless in you is aware of life’s timelessness,
And knows that yesterday is but today’s memory and tomorrow is today’s dream.
And that which sings and contemplates in you is still dwelling 
within the bounds of that first moment which scattered the stars into space."

"And is not time even as love is, undivided and paceless?
But if in your thought you must measure time into seasons,
 let each season encircle all the other seasons,
And let today embrace the past with remembrance and the future with longing."
- Kahlil Gibran, "The Prophet"

"The problem is, you think you have time."
- The Buddha
