Fragment “Four Quartets”

…And what there is to conquer

By strength and submission, has already been discovered

Once or twice, or several times, by men whom one cannot hope

To emulate -but there is no competition-

there is only the fight to recover what has been lost

And found and lost again…

                               ***

[…Y lo que hay que conquistar

por la fuerza y la sumisión ha sido ya descubierto

Una, o dos, o varias veces, por hombres a los que no puede esperarse

Emular -pero no hay competencia-

Solo existe la lucha por recobrar lo que se ha perdido

Y encontrado, y vuelto a perder muchas veces…]

T.S ELIOT, Four Quartets, 1944
