Do any of you know if there is a quote in The Magus which goes something like this:

You shall never cease from exploring.....you will return to where you started only know it better.....??

I'd appreciate ANY help on this.

Thank you.
Luna

This appears early in the novel right before Nicholas meets Conchis. Nicholas is on the beach and comes upon a book with the following passage highlighted:

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.

The quote is from"Little Gidding," a poem by T.S. Eliot.
