"It's no more use trying to be traditional than it is trying to be original. Nobody invents very much, but there is one thing to be said for contemporary poetry that can't be said in favour of any other, and that is that it is written by our contemporaries." -- T.S. Eliot
Spoken by Eliot on the only known film of him, which lasts about 8 seconds. Thanks to Jim McCue, who is working on the re-editing of Eliot's works.
