He is dedicated to the people he cares about and conscientious about meeting his responsibilities, especially to family. Family solidarity and cohesiveness are very important to T. S. Eliot and so, therefore, are the traditions, rituals, and memories that keep the bonds strong.
T. S. Eliot is apt to do more than his fair share in the family, to go the extra mile, but for the most part this is satisfying rather than burdensome to him.
In addition to Thomas' rather introverted, serious, or self-contained side, he has a wild streak and urge for emotional freedom that breaks through erratically. T. S. Eliot craves both stability and excitement, and the conflict between these two impulses can make Eliot rather tense and irritable. However, they can also balance one another. His more free and unpredictable side will now be described.
