it was amazing
bookshelves: poetry

I read this as part of a grad-level writing class called "Writing into the Unknown." The professor used selections from Eliot as epigraphs to every class session since Eliot writes so eloquently about time.

Time present and time past
Are both perhaps present in time future,
And time future contained in time past.
Here between the hither and the farther shore
While time is withdrawn, consider the future
And the past with an equal mind.
All shall be well, and
All manner of thing shall be well.
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.
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.
