Thomas Stearns Eliot quotes:
Only those who risk going too far can possibly find out how far they can go.
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.
Success is relative. It s what we can make of the mess we have made of things.
The only wisdom we can hope to acquire is the wisdom of humility: Humility is endless.
Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge?
Where is the knowledge we have lost in information?
Right action is freedom
From past and future also
Success is relative
It is what we can make of the mess we have made of things
The years between 50 and 70 are the hardest . . . You are always being asked to do things, and hyet you are not decrepit to turn the down.
At the beach time you enjoyed wasting, is not time wasted.
Last season's fruit is eaten
And the fullfed beast shall kick the empty pail.
For last year's words belong to last year's language
And next year's words await another voice.
