Quotes by T.S. Eliot

"For last year's words belong to last year's language
And next year's words await another voice."

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

"This is the way the world ends
Not with a bang but a whimper."

"To do the useful thing, to say the courageous thing, to contemplate the beautiful thing: that is enough for one man's life."

"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."
