Quote of the Day: T.S. Eliot on Exploration and Knowing

In my meanderings on the web I came across this quote, from T.S. Eliot's poem (or collection of poems), "The Four Quartets".

From Coldbacon.com:
"The Four Quartets" by T.S. Eliot
http://www.coldbacon.com/poems/fq.html

Here are the lines from the poem, very near the end, that caught my eye.
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.
Fascinating. At this point I have read the poem. But I think I need to read it again, perhaps several times. If only I can someday reach the place where I started and truly know the place. Seriously.
