    First impression was ILI, awhile back. Haven't thought about it since, until now.

    "T.S. Eliot on the auditory imagination:


    “What I call the ‘auditory imagination’ is the feeling for syllable and rhythm, penetrating far below the conscious levels of thought and feeling, invigorating every word; sinking to the most primitive and forgotten, returning to the origin and bringing something back, seeking the beginning and the end. It works through meanings, certainly, or not without meanings in the ordinary sense, and fuses the old and obliterated and the trite, the current, and the new and surprising, the most ancient and most civilized mentality.”"

    T. S. ELIOT, The Sacred Wood
    There will be time, there will be time To prepare a face to meet the faces that you meet;There will be time to murder and create,And time for all the works and days of hands,That lift and drop a question on your plate;Time for you and time for me,And time yet for a hundred indecisions, And for a hundred visions and revisions,Before the taking of a toast and tea.
