T. S. Eliot quotes

“Some editors are failed writers, but so are most writers.” – T. S. Eliot

“Immature poets imitate; mature poets steal.” – T.S. Eliot

“Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion; it is not the expression of personality, but an escape from personality. But, of course, only those who have personality and emotions know what it means to want to escape from these things.” – T.S. Eliot

“What is needed of art is a simplification of current life into something rich and strange.” – T.S. Eliot
