Friday’s Leaderly Quote from T.S. Eliot: Have You Arrived?
October 29, 2010
You must go by a way wherein there is no ecstasy.
In order to arrive at what you do not know,
You must go by a way which is the way of ignorance.
In order to possess what you do not possess
You must go by the way of dispossession.
In order to arrive at what you are not
You must go through the way in which you are not.
And what you do not know is the only thing you know
And what you own is what you do not own
And where you are is where you are not.
(T.S. Eliot, Four Quartets, East Coker)
What do you draw from Eliot’s words?
Have you arrived at the destination of personal fulfillment?
Where do you want to be?
