Enjoy living in the moment but remember that learning English will prepare you for the future in order to reach our ending point of non return, because as T.S. Eliot said: “What we call the beginning is often the end. And to make an end is to make a beginning. The end is where we start from; or otherwise: the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.

A futuristic and surrealistic thinker is an artist who can enjoy both the deep sorrow of the real death in life and the feeble pleasure of an unreal life in death.
Carl William Brown

Imaginative literature in the service of rebellion, or satanism, quickly sinks into exhibitionism or obscurity. Imaginative literature as the expression of a deeply apprehended truth, poetry which interprets to a man the myth of his own age, can in the hands of Dante, of Shakespeare, of Cervantes, of Camoes and of Goethe, help to raise the level of a whole civilization.
J. M. Cohen

The reserve of modern assertions is sometimes pushed to extremes, in which the fear of being contradicted leads the writer to strip himself of almost all sense and meaning.
Winston S. Churchill

Religion is only literature, but luckily literature is not only religion.
Carl William Brown

Books are not absolutely dead things, but do contain a potency of life in them….I know they are as lively and as vigorously productive as those fabulous dragon’s teeth and being sown up and down, may chance to spring up armed men.
John Milton
