“Time present and time past
Are both perhaps present in time future
And time future contained in time past. . . .

”Time past and time future
Allow but a little consciousness.
To be conscious is not to be in time
But only in time can the moment in the rose-garden,
The moment in the arbour where the rain beat,
The moment in the draughty church at smokefall
Be remembered; involved with past and future.
Only through time time is conquered."

― T.S. Eliot, Four Quartets
