T. S. Eliot
Surround yourself with the best people you can find, delegate authority,
and don\'t interfere as long as the policy you\'ve decided upon is being
Let those who are in favour with their stars
Of public honour and proud titles boast,
Whilst I, whom fortune of such triumph bars
Unlook\'d for joy in that I honour most.
Great princes\' favourites their fair leaves spread
But as the marigold at the sun\'s eye,
And in themselves their pride lies buried,
For at a frown they in their glory die.
The painful warrior famoused for fight,
After a thousand victories once foil\'d,
Is from the book of honour razed quite,
And all the rest forgot for which he toil\'d:
Then happy I, that love and am belov\'d,
Where I may not remove nor be remov\'d.
So oft have I invoked thee for my Muse,
And found such fair assistance in my verse
As every alien pen hath got my use
And under thee their poesy disperse.
Thine eyes, that taught the dumb on high to sing
And heavy ignorance aloft to fly,
Have added feathers to the learned\'s wing
And given grace a double majesty.
Yet be most proud of that which I compile,
Whose influence is thine, and born of thee:
In others\' works thou dost but mend the style,
And arts with thy sweet graces graced be;
But thou art all my art, and dost advance
As high as learning, my rude ignorance.
