Immature poets imitate; mature poets steal.
T. S. Eliot
No, Time, thou shalt not boast that I do change:
Thy pyramids built up with newer might
To me are nothing novel, nothing strange;
They are but dressings of a former sight.
Our dates are brief, and therefore we admire
What thou dost foist upon us that is old;
And rather make them born to our desire
Than think that we before have heard them told.
Thy registers and thee I both defy,
Not wondering at the present nor the past,
For thy records and what we see doth lie,
Made more or less by thy continual haste.
This I do vow and this shall ever be;
I will be true despite thy scythe and thee.
Founding Fathers Quotes
But the safety of the people of America against dangers from foreign force depends not only on their forbearing to give just
causes of war to other nations, but also on their placing and continuing themselves in such a situation as not to invite
hostility or insult; for it need not be observed that there are pretended as well as just causes of war.
John Jay, Federalist No. 4
I must say Bernard Shaw is greatly improved by music.
T. S. Eliot
