Rc – Clarke – Diaspar – 045 – Stability… leads too easily to stagnation

Por |enero 11th, 2017|

Stability, however, is not enough.

It leads too easily to stagnation,

and thence to decadence.

The designers of the city took elaborate steps to avoid this

though these deserted buildings suggest

that they did not entirely succeed.

I, Khedron the Jester, am part of that plan.

A very small part, perhaps.

I like to think otherwise, but I can never be sure.

Alvin was an explorer,
and all explorers are seeking
something they have lost.
It is seldom that they find it,
and more seldom still
that the attainment brings them
greater happiness than the quest.

Alvin era un explorador,
y todos los exploradores
buscan algo que han perdido.
Casi nunca lo encuentran,
y es todavía más difícil
que el logro les traiga
más felicidad que el camino.
