“We die to each other daily.
What we know of other people is only our memory of the
moments during which we knew them.
And they have changed since then.
To pretend that they and we are the same is a useful and
convenient social convention which must sometimes be broken.
We must also remember that at every meeting we are
meeting a stranger.” ― T.S. Eliot, The Cocktail Party
This is truly an amazing poet and literary perfectionist.
I just love him.
