T.S. Eliot Quotations

-Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.

-In a world of fugitives the person taking the opposite direction will appear to run away.

-I have measured out my life with coffee spoons.

-We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.

-To whom I owe the leaping delight
That quickens my senses in our wakingtime
And the rhythm that governs the repose of our sleepingtime,
The breathing in unison
Of lovers whose bodies smell of each other
Who think the same thoughts without need of speech
And babble the same speech without need of meaning.
No peevish winter wind shall chill
No sullen tropic sun shall wither
The roses in the rose-garden which is ours and ours only
But this dedication is for others to read:
These are private words addressed to you in public.

-In order to arrive at what you do not know
You must go by the way which is the way of ignorance

-Humankind cannot stand very much reality.

-The last temptation is the greatest treason: to do the right deed for the wrong reason.

-Some editors are failed writers, but so are most writers.
