Burnt Norton - excerpt 2 (from The Four Quartets)by T. S. Eliot
Original Language English
Time past and time future
Allow but a little consciousness.
To be conscious is not to be in time
But only in time can the moment in the rose-garden,
The moment in the arbour where the rain beat,
The moment in the draughty church at smokefall
Be remembered; involved with past and future.
Only through time time is conquered.
|-- from Four Quartets, by T. S. Eliot|
