Quotes by T. S. Eliot 5

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.

  • Love is most nearly itself
    When here and now cease to matter.
  • The one thing to do
    Is to do nothing. Wait.
    . . .You will find that you survive humiliation.
    And that's an experience of incalculable value.
  • In the small circle of pain within the skull
    You still shall tramp and tread one endless round
    Of thought, to justify your action to yourselves,
    Weaving a fiction which unravels as you weave,
    Pacing forever in the hell of make-believe
    Which never is belief: this is your fate on earth
    And we must think no further of you.
  • The last temptation is the greatest treason:
    To do the right deed for the wrong reason.
  • There are flood and drouth
    Over the eyes and in the mouth,
    Dead water and dead sand
    Contending for the upper hand.
    The parched eviscerate soil
    Gapes at the vanity of toil,
    Laughs without mirth.
    This is the death of the earth.
  • Our emotions
    Are only incidents
    In the effort to keep day and night together.
  • O City city, I can sometimes hear
    Beside a public bar in Lower Thames Street,
    The pleasant whining of a mandolin
    And a clatter and a chatter from within
    Where fishmen lounge at noon.
