     From Little Gidding-T.S.Eliot “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, remembered 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 Mot known, because not looked for But heard, half heard in the stillness Between to waves of the sea Quick now, here now, always A condition of complete simplicity (costing not less than everything) And all shall be well and All manner of thig shall be well When the tongues of flame are in-folded Into the crowned knot of fire And the fire and the rose are one”
