Thought for the Day

Where is the Life we have lost in living?
Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge?
Where is the knowledge we have lost in information?
~ T. S. Eliot

Quoted from T. S. Eliot, "The Rock" (Opening Stanza from Choruses), 1934.  Note: "The Rock" was a 21-page verse pageant play written on behalf of 45 Churches Fund of the Diocese of London.
