Chuang Tzu Story - A white Colt Passes A Crevice (白驹过隙)
Men's life between heaven and earth is like a white colt's passing a crevice, and suddenly disappearing. As with a plunge and an effort they all come forth; easily and quietly they all enter again. By a transformation they live, and by another transformation they die. Living things are made sad (by death), and mankind grieve for it; but it is (only) the removal of the bow from its sheath, and the emptying the natural satchel of its contents. There may be some confusion amidst the yielding to the change; but the intellectual and animal souls are taking their leave, and the body will follow them:-- This is the Great Returning home

人生天地之间,若白驹之过隙,忽然而已。注然勃然,莫不出焉;油然寥然,莫不入焉。已化而生,又化而死。生物哀之,人类悲之。解其天韬,堕其天帙。纷乎宛乎,魂魄将往,乃身从之。乃大归乎!不形之形,形之不形,是人之所同知也,非将至之所务也,此众人之所同论也。彼至则不论,论则不至;明见无值,辩不若默;道不可闻,闻不若塞:此之谓大得​。
