“At my father’s club, sitting before the fire, we had spoken of ‘moments made eternity’, meaning what are called timeless moments, moments precisely without the pressure of time -moments that might be called, indeed, timeful moments. And we had clearly understood that the pressure of time was our nearly inescapable awareness of an approaching terminus- the bell about to ring, the holiday about to end, the going down from Oxford foreseen… Life itself is pressured by death, the final terminus. Socrates refused to delay his own death for a few more hours: perhaps he knew that those few hours under the pressure of time would be worth little… Awareness of duration, of terminus, spoils Now.” - Sheldon Vanauken

“Thus it is necessary to commence from an inescapable duality: the finite is not the infinite.”
- Hans Urs Von Balthasar

“What a haunting, inescapable riddle life was.”
- Walter De La Mare

“And so it’s inescapable, and people who proclaim scrupulous honesty can only 
proclaim that if they don’t examine closely the things they believe.”
- Todd Rundgren

“Events may be horrible or inescapable. 
Men have always a choice – if not whether, then how, they may endure.”
- Lois McMaster Bujold

“Your life is inescapable. Unless you decide to escape it.”
- David Levithan
