Yoshida Kenko – The hour of death waits for no order

Share this quote:
Yoshida KenkoThe hour of death waits for no order. Death does not even come from the front. It is ever pressing on from behind. All men know of death, but they do not expect it of a sudden, and it comes upon them unawares. So, though the dry flats extend far out, soon the tide comes and floods the beach.

Yoshida Kenko   (1284 – 1350)
