But there are degrees. A man may desire to go to Mecca. His conscience tells him that he ought to go to Mecca.

And when you have done, ask yourself honestly whether you still dislike poetry.

We never shall have any more time. We have, and we have always had, all the time there is. It is the realisation of this profound and neglected truth (which, by the way, I have not discovered) that has led me to the minute practical examination of daily time-expenditure
