T.S. Eliot or Star Wars?

1.   “For us, there is only the trying.  The rest is not our business.”

2.   “The more you tighten your grip…the more star systems will slip through your fingers.”

3.   “We seem to be made to suffer.  It’s our lot in life.”

4.   “Unnatural vices are fathered by our heroism.”

5.   “Fear death by water.”

6.   “Without precise calculations, we could fly right through a star.”

7.   “Do I dare disturb the universe?”

8.   “…until her teeth were only accidental stars with a talent for squad-drill.”

9.   “If you strike me down, I’ll become more powerful than you could ever imagine.”

10.   “I will show you fear in a handful of dust.”

11.   “Hurry up please, it’s time.”

12.   “Into the garbage chute, flyboy.”

(George Lucas: 2, 3, 6, 9, 12.  T.S. Eliot: 1, 4, 5, 7, 8, 10, 11.)
