Eliot: Our Business

“It is our business, as readers of literature, to know what we like. It is our business, as Christians, as well as readers of literature, to know what we ought to like. It is our business as honest men, not to assume that whatever we like is what we ought to like.”

– T.S. Eliot, in his essay “Religion and Literature”
