Choruses from The Rock

“Endless invention, endless experiment,
Brings knowledge of motion, but not of stillness;
Knowledge of speech, but not of silence;
Knowledge of words, and ignorance of the Word.
All our knowledge brings us nearer to death,
But nearness to death no nearer to God.
Where is the Life we have lost in living?
Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge?
Where is the knowledge we have lost in information?”

T.S.Eliot

About olesyalutsenko

Russian-born author and lecturer came from the Ukrainian State Maritime Technical University in Mykolaijv to teach maritime English and Cultural Awareness at the De Ruyter Maritime College and De Ruyter Maritime Academy in the Netherlands. My experiences have strengthened my belief that nautical students must be specially trained to deal with the multicultural working environment they are likely to encounter at sea... I consider the Intercultural Competence as an integrated part of the 21 century skills.
