No Man Ever Steps In The Same River Twice

A client of my manifesto, when conversing on his personal manifesto, was prompted by our comment that a personal manifesto is both ‘stable and dynamic’, to offer this quote by Heraclitus: “No man ever steps in the same river twice, for it’s not the same river and he’s not the same man”.  When referring to… Read More
