Age
Engrave this Quote The years between fifty and seventy are the hardest. You are always asked to do things, and you are not yet decrepit enough to turn them down.

-TS (Thomas Stearns) Eliot
Engrave this Quote 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.

-TS (Thomas Stearns) Eliot
Engrave this Quote A play should give you something to think about. When I see a play and understand it the first time, then I know it can't be much good.

Baby, Babies
Engrave this Quote Moving between the legs of tables and of chairs, rising or falling, grasping at kisses and toys, advancing boldly, sudden to take alarm, retreating to the corner of arm and knee, eager to be reassured, taking pleasure in the fragrant brilliance of the Christmas tree.

Books
Engrave this Quote When we read of human beings behaving in certain ways, with the approval of the author, who gives his benediction to this behavior by his attitude towards the result of the behavior arranged by himself, we can be influenced towards behaving in the same way.

Criticism
Engrave this Quote We might remind ourselves that criticism is as inevitable as breathing, and that we should be none the worse for articulating what passes in our minds when we read a book and feel an emotion about it, for criticizing our own minds in their work of criticism.

Dance, Dancing
Engrave this Quote I said to my soul
Be still
And wait without hope
For hope would be hope for the wrong thing
And wait without love
For love would be love of the wrong thing
There is yet faith
But the faith and the hope and the love
Are all in the waiting
And do not think
For you are not ready for thought
So the darkness shall be the light
And the stillness
The dancing

Death
Engrave this Quote And what the dead had no speech for, when living, they can tell you, being dead: the communication of the dead is tongued with fire beyond the language of the living.

Engrave this Quote 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.

Endings
Engrave this Quote 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.

-TS (Thomas Stearns) Eliot, "Four Quartets"
Evil
Engrave this Quote So far as we are human, what we do must be either evil or good: so far as we do evil or good, we are human: and it is better, in a paradoxical way, to do evil than to do nothing: at least we exist.

Fashion
Engrave this Quote We do not quite say that the new is more valuable because it fits in; but its fitting in is a test of its value -- a test, it is true, which can only be slowly and cautiously applied, for we are none of us infallible judges of conformity.

-TS (Thomas Stearns) Eliot
Engrave this Quote But though I have wept and fasted, wept and prayed, Though I have seen my head grown slightly bald brought in upon a platter,
I am no prophet--and here's no great matter;
I have seen the moment of my greatness flicker,
And I have seen the eternal Footman hold my coat, and snicker,
And in short, I was afraid.
