    Default Today's Thought for the Day

    I usually don't read this, but when it's short I try to take it in. Today's says
    'Nothing suggest itself. There is nothing to do but keep on."

    TE Hulme
    He might have been saying something very strange - or possibly it's the end of a sentence and 'suggest' is in the subjunctive. But I doubt it.

    Default Re: Today's Thought for the Day

    That line is taken from his last poem, which is described as 'abbreviated from the conversation of TE Hulme', and done after he was killed. The version I have in a biography gives it as suggests, though.
