T. S. Eliot

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.
– T. S. Eliot

I don’t believe one grows older. I think that what happens early on in life is that at a certain age one stands still and stagnates.
– T. S. Eliot

If you aren’t in over your head, how do you know how tall you are?
– T. S. Eliot

“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.”

― T.S. Eliot, The Cocktail Party
