Managing Monday with T.S.Eliot – Take 2

Posted by on Oct 2, 2017 in Blog | 0 comments

Ever since studying Murder in the Cathedral during my school years, I have been a bit of a T.S.Eliot fan. For those not familar with his work, Eliot (1888-1965), who identifed himself as an Anglo-Catholic, was one of the most significant poets and playwrights of the twentieth century. In 1948 he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature. Here is a second taste of some of his many reflections…

  • Anxiety is the handmaiden of creativity. T.S.Eliot
  • The purpose of literature is to turn blood into ink. T.S.Eliot
  • Time you enjoyed wasting is not wasted time. T.S.Eliot
  • Only those who risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go. T.S.Eliot
  • I learn a good deal by merely observing you, And letting you talk as long as you please, And taking note of what you do not say. T.S.Eliot

As always, nice chatting…
