Quote of the Day (Cecil Day-Lewis, on Defending ‘The Bad Against the Worse’)

“It is the logic of our times,
No subject for immortal verse –
That we who lived by honest dreams
Defend the bad against the worse.” — Anglo-Irish poet (and British Poet Laureate) Cecil Day-Lewis (1904-1972), “Where Are the War Poets?”, in The Complete Poems (1992)
