T.S. Eliot

“For us there is only the trying. The rest is not our business.”

“Genuine poetry can communicate before it is understood.”

The most difficult years, according to T.S. Eliot, are between 50 and 70. “You are always asked to do things, and yet you are not decrepit enough to turn them down.”

“No one can become really educated without having pursued some study in which he took no interest ... for it is a part of education to interest ourselves in subjects for which we have no aptitude.”
