"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?"

- Excerpt from 'The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock', T. S. Elliot

Prufrock's awesome!
Brings a strange tint of familiarity.
