750 years apart ... they wrote this ...

Nothing is born, nothing is destroyed.
Away with your dualism, your likes and dislikes.
Every single thing is just the One Mind.
When you have perceived this,
you will have mounted the Chariot of the Buddhas.
-Huang Po, "Zen Teaching of Huang Po"

(born ? - died 850)

… what though the sea with waves continual
do eat the earth, it is no more at all:
nor is the earth the less, or loseth ought.
for whatsoever from one place doth fall,
is with the tide unto an other brought:
for there is nothing lost, that may be found, if sought.

Edmund Spenser, "The Faerie Queene"
(c. 155213 January 1599)
