Truly, human life is as ephemeral as dew and as brief as lightning.

Ryūnosuke Akutagawa (1 March 1892 – 24 July 1927) was a Japanese writer.


  • A man sometimes devotes his life to a desire which he is not sure will ever be fulfilled. Those who laugh at this folly are, after all, no more than mere spectators of life.
