Another Eliot Quote

“And the children in the apple tree

not known because not looked for

but heard, half heard, in the stillness

between two waves of the sea.

Quick now, here, now, always –

a condition of complete simplicity

(costing not less than everything)

and all shall be well and

all manner of things shall be well

when the tongues of flame are in-folded

into the crowned knot of fire

and the Rose and the Fire are one.”
