“What we call the beginning is often the end
And to make an end is to make a beginning.
The end is where we start from.”
“We shall not cease from exploration and the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.
Through the unknown, unremembered gate
When the last of earth left to discover is that which was the beginning;
At the source of the longest river
The voice of the hidden waterfall and the children in the apple-tree
Not known, because not looked for but heard, half-heard,
in the stillness between two waves of the sea.”
~ T.S. Elliott, excerpts from Four Quartets: Part IV Little Gidding
