„Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge?
Where is the knowledge we have lost in infomation?“

—  T.S. Eliot

Choruses from The Rock (1934)
Változat: Where is the Life we have lost in living?
Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge?
Where is the knowledge we have lost in information?
Kontextus: O perpetual revolution of configured stars,
O perpetual recurrence of determined seasons,
O world of spring and autumn, birth and dying!
The endless cycle of idea and action,
Endless invention, endless experiment,
Brings knowledge of motion, but not of stillness;
Knowledge of speech, but not of silence;
Knowledge of words, and ignorance of The Word.
All our knowledge brings us nearer to our ignorance,
All our ignorance brings us nearer to death,
But nearness to death no nearer to God.
Where is the Life we have lost in living?
Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge?
Where is the knowledge we have lost in information?
The cycles of Heaven in twenty centuries
Brings us farther from God and nearer to the Dust.

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

„Between the conception
And the creation
Between the emotion
And the response
Falls the Shadow
Life is very long.“

—  T.S. Eliot, könyv The Hollow Men

Változat: Between the desire
And the spasm
Between the potency
And the existence
Between the essence
And the descent
Falls the Shadow

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

—  T.S. Eliot, könyv Four Quartets

Változat: For last year's words belong to last year's language
And next year's words await another voice.
And to make an end is to make a beginning."

„Speech without word and
Word of no speech
Grace to the Mother
For the Garden
Where all love ends.“

—  T.S. Eliot

Ash-Wednesday (1930)
Kontextus: Lady of silences
Calm and distressed
Torn and most whole
Rose of memory
Rose of forgetfulness
Exhausted and life-giving
Worried reposeful
The single Rose
Is now the Garden
Where all loves end
Terminate torment
Of love unsatisfied
The greater torment
Of love satisfied
End of the endless
Journey to no end
Conclusion of all that
Is inconclusible
Speech without word and
Word of no speech
Grace to the Mother
For the Garden
Where all love ends.

„Do I dare
Disturb the universe?
In a minute there is time
For decisions and revisions which a minute will reverse.“

—  T.S. Eliot, The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock

The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock (1915)
Kontextus: Do I dare
Disturb the universe?
In a minute there is time
For decisions and revisions which a minute will reverse.
For I have known them all already, known them all: —
Have known the evenings, mornings, afternoons,
I have measured out my life with coffee spoons;
I know the voices dying with a dying fall
Beneath the music from a farther room.
