The hills are shadows, and they flow/ from form to form, and nothing stands. (Tennyson, In Memoriam)

“And ‘from’ flowed into ‘form’: philology was showing that language was subject to the same ceaseless shiftings as everything else. Not even words stood for what they once did.”. (Robert Macfarlane, Mountains of the Mind)
