Panta Rhei [classical Greek]: all things are in constant flux (Heraclitus, c.540- c.480 BC)

Heraclitus is known for illustrating the persistence of unity through change by the analogy of the river:
"Upon those who step into the same river, different and ever different waters flow down."

"Panta Rhei" perfectly captures my feelings about folk music; the constant of distilled songs passed down through time is marked by each generation that encounters the music.
