T.S. Eliot

This idea is from Aral's blog. Here it is:Grab the nearest book.Open the book to page 23.Find the fifth sentence.Post the text of the sentence in your journal (along with these instructions).

Nearest book (I'm in a room of books, I took one from the top.): Modern American Poets. Page 23, fifth sentence is the first line of a poem (duh).

"A cold coming we had of it, Just the worst time of the year For a journey, and such a long journey: The ways deep and the weather sharp, The very dead of winter."

"He'd be so rude and unpleasant to her that the memory of his lack of basic decency and of her tight offended face would be a further disincentive ever, in the future, to risk calling her and repeating the course of action he had now committed himself to."

from "Infinite Jest" by David Foster Wallace
