Four Quartets

God, I love this poem.

Time to be honest. I’ve yet to read it. There are just so many excerpts that I find amazing that I’ve never felt the need to actually read it! I think I better soon.

Are both perhaps present in time future
And time future contained in time past.
If all time is eternally present
All time is unredeemable.
