How should I presume?

“… Do I dare
Disturb the universe?
In a minute there is time
For decisions and revisions which a minute will reverse.

For I have known them all already, known them all:–
Have known the evenings, mornings, afternoons,
I have measured out my life with coffee spoons;
I know the voices dying with a dying fall
Beneath the music from a farther room.
So how should I presume?

And I have known the eyes already, known them all–
The eyes that fix you in a formulated phrase,
And when I am formulated, sprawling on a pin,
When I am pinned and wriggling on the wall,
Then how should I begin
To spit out all the butt-ends of my days and ways?
And how should I presume?”

Excerpted from The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock, by T.S. Eliot

What’s in my Heart Must Come Out…

“I have never thought of writing for reputation and honor. What I have in my heart must come out; that is the reason why I compose.”

— Ludwig van Beethoven
