Nothing can ever happen twice.
In consequence, the sorry fact is
that we arrive here improvised
and leave without the chance to practice.
Even if there is no one dumber,
if you're the planet's biggest dunce,
you can't repeat the class in summer:
this course is only offered once.
No day copies yesterday,
no two nights will teach what bliss is
in precisely the same way,
with exactly the same kisses.

Reproduced from the poem "Nothing Twice" by Wislawa Szymborska
Every element in the Universe exists in a state of constant change and becoming.

You cannot step twice into the same river.

Inverted pendulum... Very cool!

No amount of experimentation can ever prove me right; a single experiment can prove me wrong.
