"Maybe that’s what life is about: there’s a lot of despair, but also the odd moment of beauty, where time is no longer the same. It’s as if those strains of music created a sort of interlude in time, something suspended, an elsewhere that had come to us, and always within never."

Muriel Barbery, The Elegance of the Hedgehog

"Maybe that’s what being alive is all about: so we can tray down those moments that we are dying."

Muriel Barbery, The Elegance of the Hedgehog

"Because beauty consists of its own passing, just as we reach for it. It’s the ephemeral configuration of things in the moment, when you can see both their beauty and their death."

Muriel Barbery, The Elegance of the Hedgehog

"Pity the poor in spirit who know neither the enchantment nor the beauty of language."

Muriel Barbery, The Elegance of the Hedgehog

"To beauty, all is forgiven, even vulgarity."

Muriel Barbery, The Elegance of the Hedgehog

"I will show you fear in a handful of dust."

T. S. Eliot, The Waste Land

"I have measured out my life with coffee spoons"

T.S. Eliot, The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock

"Time for you and time for me,
And time yet for a hundred indecisions,
And for a hundred visions and revisions,
Before the taking of a toast and tea."

T.S. Eliot, The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock

"We are doomed to choose, and every choice may entail an irreparable loss."

Isaiah Berlin

"After such knowledge, what forgiveness?"

T. S. Eliot, Gerontion
