I shall grow irreproachably tender:
not a man, but a cloud in trousers!“

„I grow old … I grow old …
I shall wear the bottoms of my trousers rolled.“

—  T.S. Eliot 20th century English author 1888 - 1965

The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock (1915)
Zdroj: The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock and Other Poems
Kontext: I grow old … I grow old...
I shall wear the bottoms of my trousers rolled.
Shall I part my hair behind? Do I dare to eat a peach?
I shall wear white flannel trousers, and walk upon the beach.
I have heard the mermaids singing, each to each.
I do not think that they will sing to me.
I have seen them riding seaward on the waves
Combing the white hair of the waves blown back
When the wind blows the water white and black.
We have lingered in the chambers of the sea
By sea-girls wreathed with seaweed red and brown
Till human voices wake us, and we drown.

„From now on whatever the hour represented on the canvas, a supreme accord will be wrought amongst all the parts of the subject: the water, the sky, the clouds, the foliage, reunified by the atmosphere, will form a whole of an irreproachable homogeneity, a grandiose and charming image of natural harmony.“

—  Gustave Geffroy French writer 1855 - 1926
