Quote of the Week

“Do I dare to eat a peach?
I shall wear white flannel trousers, and walk upon the beach.
I have heard the mermaids singing, each to each.
I do not think that they will sing to me.”

The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock by Thomas Stearns Eliot [1888-1965].

Quote taken from Bartlett’s Familiar Quotations by John Bartlett.
