Definition and Example 

Nothing lasts forever. e.g. ‘You might feel fed up right now, but remember, all things must pass.’

Origin

It originates from the Kings James Bible, which was just as influential, if not more so, on the English languages as Shakespeare.

It is also a Buddhist precept. On the one hand it’s sad that everything is finite, but on the other it motivates me to make the most of things, to relish life and to have hope that when I face difficulties they too won’t last.
