T. S. EliotA God. The God. One word can make all the difference in the world.
- C.S. Lewis, In Religion
Immature poets imitate; mature poets steal.
T. S. Eliot
When to the sessions of sweet silent thought
I summon up remembrance of things past,
I sigh the lack of many a thing I sought,
And with old woes new wail my dear time\'s waste:
Then can I drown an eye, unused to flow,
For precious friends hid in death\'s dateless night,
And weep afresh love\'s long since cancell\'d woe,
And moan the expense of many a vanish\'d sight:
Then can I grieve at grievances foregone,
And heavily from woe to woe tell o\'er
The sad account of fore-bemoaned moan,
Which I new pay as if not paid before.
But if the while I think on thee, dear friend,
All losses are restor\'d and sorrows end.
