The Changeling was an important work to Eliot, but I
don't remember hispicking that passage as a favourite.
Have you the documentation at all?

 A passage which was Eliot's favorite --
 
"Beneath the stars, upon yon meteor
 Ever hung my fate, 'mongst things corruptible;
 I ne'er could pluck it from him; my loathing
 Was prophet to the rest, but ne'er believed."
 
 -- Thomas Middleton, The Changeling (V, iii)
 
a haunting strain
