T.S. ELIOT ON JESSE JACKSON:

T.S. ELIOT ON JESSE JACKSON: OK, so he never said anything directly about Jesse Jackson, but Kathleen Parker quotes some very apropos Eliot at the beginning of her column on the man she calls “a nation of one”:

“Half the harm that is done in this world is due to people who want to feel important. They don’t mean to do harm – but the harm does not interest them. Or they do not see it, or they justify it because they are absorbed in the endless struggle to think well of themselves.”
