A Quote by Thomas Stearns Eliot on colors, death, direction, force, losing, men, soul, and violence

Shape without form, shade without color, Paralyzed force, gesture without motion; Those who have crossed With direct eyes, to death's other Kingdom Remember us-if at all-not as lost Violent souls, but only As the hollow men The stuffed men.
