a quote . . .

"Human life is involved in the contrast between the ephemeral and the eternal. It is the poet's task to give permanence to what is fleeting, for in language, his special realm, the stamp of the eternal is impressed on the ephemeral." -- H.P. Rickman (in an article on Rilke and Eliot).
