Ash Wednesday Quotes

And see my dreams corrode with rust;
Now all that's left are fruitless fires
That burn my empty heart to dust."

Because I do not hope
Because I do not hope to turn."

Teach us to sit still.'

In the cool of the day."

The wounded surgeon plies the steel
That questions the distempered part;
Beneath the bleeding hands we feel
The sharp compassion of the healer's art
Resolving the enigma of the fever chart.

The dancers are all gone under the hill.

T. S. Eliot

With words and meanings.

Cannot bear very much reality.

T. S. Eliot

Footfalls echo in the memory
Down the passage which we did not take
Towards the door we never opened
Into the rose-garden.

Time present and time past
Are both perhaps present in time future,
And time future contained in time past.

T. S. Eliot
