Quotes by T. S. Eliot 3

Thomas Stearns Eliot born Sept. 26, 1888, St. Louis, Mo., U.S., died Jan. 4, 1965, London, Eng. American-English poet, playwright, literary critic, and editor, a leader of the modernist movement in poetry in such works as The Waste Land (1922) and The Four Quartets (1943). Eliot exercised a strong influence on Anglo-American culture from the 1920s until late in the century. His experiments in diction, style, and versification revitalized English poetry, and in a series of critical essays he shattered old orthodoxies and erected new ones. The publication of The Four Quartets led to his recognition as the greatest living English poet and man of letters, and in 1948 he was awarded both the Order of Merit and the Nobel Prize for Literature.

  • No! I am not Prince Hamlet, nor was meant to be:
    Am an attendant lord, one that will do
    To swell a progress, start a scene or two, advise the prince.
  • So far as we are human, what we do must be either evil or good: so far as we do evil or good, we are human: and it is better, in a paradoxical way, to do evil than to do nothing: at least we exist.
  • The progress of an artist is a continual self-sacrifice, a continual extinction of personality.
  • The dripping blood our only drink,
    The bloody flesh our only food:
    In spite of which we like to think
    That we are sound, substantial flesh and blood -
    Again, in spite of that, we call this Friday good.
  • 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.
  • I will show you fear in a handful of dust.
