April is the crullest month, breeding
Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing
Memory and desire, stirring
Dull roots with spring rain.
The Waste Land
In my beginning is my end.
Home is the place where one starts from
Teach us to care and not to care.
Teach us to sit still
Det antall mennesker som innehar noe kreterie for å skille mellom godt og ondt er meget lite
Virginia lectures, 1933
Helvete er enselv
The Cocktail Party
History has many cunning passages, contrived corridores and issues
I grow old ... I grow old ...
I shall wear the bottoms of my trousers rolld.
The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock
Any man might do a girl in
Any man has to, need to want to
Once in a lifetime, do a girl in
Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge?
Where is the knowledge we have lost in information?
We shall never 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.
Human kind cannot bear much reality.
It is impossible to design a system so perfect that no one needs to be good
The golden moments in the stream of life rush past us, and we see nothing but sand; the angels come to visit us, and we only know them when they are gone
One way of getting an idea of our fellow-countrymen's miseries is to go and look at their pleasures
Why do men go to war? Because women are watching
Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go
T. S. Eliot
