So here I am in the middle way…

So here I am, in the middle way, having had twenty years — twenty years largely wasted, the years of l’entre deux guerres — trying to learn to use words, and every attempt is a wholly new start, and a different kind of failure, because one has only learnt to get the better of words for the thing one no longer has to say, or the way in which one is no longer disposed to say it.

T.S. Eliot, Four Quartets
