Voice of the Day: T.S. Eliot

By the Web Editors 12-01-2008

You are not here to verify,
Instruct yourself, or inform curiosity
Or carry report. You are here to kneel
Where prayer has been valid. And prayer is more
Than an order of words, the conscious occupation
Of the praying mind, or the sound of the voice praying.

- T.S. Eliot
