You are the music while the music lasts. T.S. Eliot famous quotes
Thomas Stearns Eliot (September 26, 1888 – January 4, 1965) was a publisher, playwright, literary and social critic and probably the most important English-language poet of the 20th century. Although he was born an American, he moved to the United Kingdom in 1914 (at age 25) and was naturalised as a British subject in 1927 at age 39.
His arguably the most well known poem “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock” – published in Chicago in 1915 – is seen as a masterpiece of the Modernist movement. T. S. Eliot received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1948, and died in London in 1965.
Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go. T.S. Eliot famous quotes
“We die to each other daily. What we know of other people is only our memory of the moments during which we knew them. And they have changed since then. To pretend that they and we are the same is a useful and convenient social convention which must sometimes be broken. We must also remember that at every meeting we are meeting a stranger.” T.S. Eliot famous quotes, The Cocktail Party
It is obvious that we can no more explain a passion to a person who has never experienced it than we can explain light to the blind.
Half of the harm that is done in this world is due to people who want to feel important. They don’t mean to do harm. But the harm does not interest them.
I don’t believe one grows older. I think that what happens early on in life is that at a certain age one stands still and stagnates. T.S. Eliot famous quotes
Where is the Life we have lost in living? Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge? Where is the knowledge we have lost in information?
What we call the beginning is often the end. And to make an end is to make a beginning. The end is where we start from.
People to whom nothing has ever happened cannot understand the unimportance of events.
Art never improves, but… the material of art is never quite the same. T.S. Eliot famous quotes
Our difficulties of the moment must always be dealt with somehow, but our permanent difficulties are difficulties of every moment.
