Quote of the Day (T.S. Eliot, in a Who-Knew?-Moment)

“I have a frightful attack of rheumatism.  I’m afraid I sang too much.”— Poet (The Waste Land) T.S. Eliot, nobody’s idea of a cut-up, writing on the day after a dinner party at his publication the Criterion, in The Letters of T.S. Eliot, Volume 3: 1926-1927, edited by Valerie Eliot and John Haffenden (2012)
