Enjoy the best of TS Eliot quotes. Quotes by TS Eliot, American poet.

Sometimes things become possible if we want them bad enough.

And next year’s words await another voice

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.

Disturb the universe?
In a minute there is time
For decisions and revisions which a minute will reverse.

A heap of broken images, where the sun beats,
And the dead tree gives no shelter, the cricket no relief,
And the dry stone no sound of water. Only
There is shadow under this red rock,
(Come in under the shadow of this red rock),
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

Love is most nearly itself
When here and now cease to matter.

If you haven’t the strength to impose your own terms upon life, then you must accept the terms it offers you.

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.

This is the way the world ends
Not with a bang but a whimper.

Most of the evil in this world is done by people with good intentions.

Check out profound Leo Tolstoy quotes that will inspire you to lead a better life

April is the cruelest month, breeding
lilacs out of the dead land, mixing
memory and desire, stirring
dull roots with spring rain.

There will be time, there will be time
To prepare a face to meet the faces that you meet.

What is hell? Hell is oneself.
Hell is alone, the other figures in it
Merely projections. There is nothing to escape from
And nothing to escape to. One is always alone.

Anxiety is the handmaiden of creativity.

Humankind cannot bear very much reality.

Genuine poetry can communicate before it is understood.

If you aren’t in over your head, how do you know how tall you are?

The very existence of libraries affords the best evidence that we may yet have hope for the future of man

What we call the beginning is often the end. And to make an end is to make a beginning. The end is where we start from.

Whatever you think, be sure it is what you think; whatever you want, be sure that is what you want; whatever you feel, be sure that is what you feel.

Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion; it is not the expression of personality but an escape from personality. But, of course, only those who have personality and emotion know what it means to want to escape from these.

Half 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. Or they do not see it, or they justify it because they are absorbed in the endless struggle to think well of themselves.

We die to each other daily. What we know of other people is only our memory of the moments during which we knew them. And they have changed since then. To pretend that they and we are the same is a useful and convenient social convention which must sometimes be broken. We must also remember that at every meeting we are meeting a stranger.

I said to my soul, be still and wait without hope, for hope would be hope for the wrong thing; wait without love, for love would be love of the wrong thing; there is yet faith, but the faith and the love are all in the waiting. Wait without thought, for you are not ready for thought: So the darkness shall be the light, and the stillness the dancing.

To arrive where you are, to get from where you are not,
You must go by a way wherein there is no ecstasy.
In order to arrive at what you do not know
You must go by a way which is the way of ignorance.
In order to possess what you do not possess
You must go by the way of dispossession.
In order to arrive at what you are not
You must go through the way in which you are not.
And what you do not know is the only thing you know
And what you own is what you do not own
And where you are is where you are not.
