Clustering in light stable and unstable nuclei is discussed. After a brief review of the clustering in stable nuclei, we make a new prediction of the existence of the alpha cluster condensed states in 12C and 16O. Discussions of clustering in light unstable nuclei are made in the cases of Be and B isotopes up to the neutron dripline.
