The excerpt represents the core issue or deciding factor on which you must meditate, and is drawn from Poems by T. S. Eliot:|
How much it means that I say this to you--
Without these friendships--life, what cauchemar!"
Among the windings of the violins
And the ariettes
Of cracked cornets
Inside my brain a dull tom-tom begins
Absurdly hammering a prelude of its own,
That is at least one definite "false note."
--Let us take the air, in a tobacco trance,
Admire the monuments
