Mmmm. These packaged quotes can be deceptive, coming across as expressing wisdom when really it’s a vague suggestion and leaves a lot up to the imagination.

This saying seems too broad to actually be helpful as it’s not necessarily applicable broadly. Yes, all things will eventually come to an end. But the phrasing of this brings up nihilistic thoughts for me, not motivated ones. When things get bad enough and for a prolonged period, sometimes the only peace in this thought is that at least it will all come to an end.

I think this saying here leaves too much up to interpretation to be motivational.

Good thought experiment though.
