ombuddha:

It is often thought that the Buddha’s doctrine teaches us that suffering will disappear if one has meditated long enough, or if one sees everything differently. It is not that at all. Suffering isn’t going away; the one who suffers is going to go away.

Aleksandr Rodchenko, Spatial Construction no.12, 1920" In 1920–21, Rodchenko produced a series of "spatial constructions" that marked abstraction’s move from painted surface to three-dimensional object.

Each spatial construction could be closed to form a flat plane, but when open it became an airy volume suspended above the ground. Simple as they seem, Rodchenko’s spatial constructions declared an end to the devices of traditional sculpture, being without figuration, mass, or pedestal. "→

A man’s joys are always transient, and since men devote themselves to pleasure, seeking after happiness, they undergo birth and decay.
