In a way I may believe, deep down, that doing nothing acts as a brake on ‘time’s - it doesn’t of course.

Theyare to be happy in: Where can we live but days?  (Philip Larkin Quotes) I listen to money singing, it’s like looking down from long French windows at a provincial town. The slums, the canal, the churches ornate and mad in the evening sun. It is intensely sad  (Philip Larkin Quotes) Life is first boredom, then fear  (Philip Larkin Quotes) Poetry is an affair of sanity, of seeing things as they are, to recreate the familar,eternalizing the poet’s own poerception in unique and original verbal form.  (Philip Larkin Quotes) Courage is no good: It means not scaring others.

It stays as it was left, / Shaped to the comfort of the last to go / As if to win them back  (Philip Larkin Quotes) My mother, who hates thunderstorms, Holds up each summer day and shakes It out suspiciously, lest swarms Of grape-dark clouds are lurking there....  (Philip Larkin Quotes)
