Commentary by Richard Wilhelm
on I Ching Hexagram 32:

Hexagram 32, Duration, of the I Ching

Duration

“Duration is… not a state of rest, for mere standstill is regression. Duration is rather the self-contained and therefore self-renewing movement of an organized, firmly integrated whole [click on link for an example], taking place in accordance with immutable laws and beginning anew at every ending.”
