I'm still confused by your original request.
Can you clarify a bit more.

  Thanks David, I had this page it's the specific lines which Eliot actually mentioned I am trying to find. I made a scribbled note but have recently returned to Saudi and I thought it was among my luggage..I live in hope, still searching.

      I recently came across a copy of A Poem and a Vanity of Human Wishes by Johnson.  The introductory essay by TS Eliot 1930.  Can someone direct me to the lines which Eliot considered an example of good poetry -the best ever written - I have lost the reference which I took from the book.
