Is a concept permanent? Is a concept truth?

"Images or concepts, not being objects of a totally non-mistaken consciousness, are not ultimate truths. They also are not impermanent, but permanent... in the sense of not undergoing momentary disintegration. Each person's concepts... come into existence in dependence on the person's having formed an image of such an object, but from the viewpoint of their representing the exclusion of everything which is not that object, they are said to be permanent." Jeffrey Hopkins - from Meditation on Emptiness
