  • Favorite Quotations
    • Footfalls echo in the memory, down the passage which we did not take, towards the door we never opened Into the rose-garden.  ~T.S. Eliot
    • It's strange that words are so inadequate. Yet, like the asthmatic struggling for breath, so the lover must struggle for words.  ~T.S. Eliot
    • People to whom nothing has ever happened cannot understand the unimportance of events.  ~T.S. Eliot
    • Beauty is a form of Genius – is higher, indeed, than Genius, as it needs no explanation. It is one of the great facts of the world, like sunlight, or spring-time, or the reflection in dark waters of that silver shell we call the moon. It cannot be questioned. It has its divine right of sovereignty. It makes princes of those who have it. ~ Oscar Wilde "The Picture of Dorian Gray"
