Tyrone Davis Confounded Heraclitus

"No man ever steps in the same river twice". Heraclitus

"But if I had just one more try
I would be yours, yours alone until the day I die
and we would have a love so divine
If I could turn back the hands of time" Tyrone Davis

The old weeping Philosopher, Heraclitus argued the Unity of Opposites - climbing a ladder is essentially descending it's rungs in reverse; 'Always remember the longer you live/The sooner you'll bloody-well die!'

Heraclitus never really said that 'everything flows' he said this, "Ποταμοῖς τοῖς αὐτοῖς ἐμβαίνομέν τε καὶ οὐκ ἐμβαίνομεν, εἶμέν τε καὶ οὐκ εἶμεν."

("We both step and do not step in the same rivers. We are and are not.")

Tyrone Davis is what am!

The late Tyrone Davis who passed away in 2005 was one of the greats. He had more soul than he could control.

In 1969, he confounded Heraclitus -

Time to get to work at Leo. Slept late.
