“גם זה יעבור. This too shall pass. The phrase appears in the works of Persian Sufi poets, such as Sanai and Attar of Nishapur.

"When the artists Andre and Lee married, Andre set out to make a painting to show his love for Lee. He worked on the same canvas their entire lives, never feeling it was done.
At the end of his days, Andre grew sad before the unifinished work.
"I did not love you enough," he said.
"Not true," Lee replied, presenting her husband with a box filled with photos of his canvas.
"I’ve been taking these , one a week," she said, "for the past forty years."—
