You are not here to verify

“I think, again, of this place, / And of people, not wholly commendable / …/ United in the strife which divided them.”

You are not here to verify,
Instruct yourself, or inform curiosity
Or carry report. You are here to kneel
Where prayer has been valid.

from T.S. Eliot's Little Gidding
