„Folks, I'm telling you,
birthing is hard
and dying is mean-
so get yourself
a little loving
in between.“

„This is the time of tension between dying and birth
The place of solitude where three dreams cross
Between blue rocks“

—  T.S. Eliot 20th century English author 1888 - 1965

Ash-Wednesday (1930)
Kontekst: And the lost heart stiffens and rejoices
In the lost lilac and the lost sea voices
And the weak spirit quickens to rebel
For the bent golden-rod and the lost sea smell
Quickens to recover
The cry of quail and the whirling plover
And the blind eye creates
The empty forms between the ivory gates
And smell renews the salt savour of the sandy earth
This is the time of tension between dying and birth
The place of solitude where three dreams cross
Between blue rocks
But when the voices shaken from the yew-tree drift away
Let the other yew be shaken and reply.
