:: Four Quartets ::

At the end of all our
journeying we shall return to the
place from which we started
and know it for the
first time

-- T.S. Eliot

oh... u also got those M1 smses... heh

Erm, it's not loh.


At times we walked too fast that we even do not looked back at what has happened...
Good to back track once in a while.

I do not know if being determined in te first place is the way to go .....

Nothing is so awesomely unfamiliar as the familiar that discloses itself at the end of a journey.


It's like staring into the mirror at yourself sometimes; and realise that you do not really recognize the person you're looking at.


Life is just a mirror, and what you see out there, you must first see inside of you.


been playing with the make-up kit again? ;P

The bible says "for dust you are, and to dust you shall return"

Actually there is another quote tat is commonly used at funerals, " Ashes to Ashes, Dust to Dust "

Hi - hope you don't mind me commenting, but I don't think that's what T.S. Eliot meant.

To me, his phrase captures the wisdom that I (hopefully) acquire as I go through life. I "journey" in the sense that I continually seek out new experiences and change, hoping to grow and find answers to the great prime questions.

But I have a sneaky feeling that in the end, I will find that which I seek where I started. The irony, of course, is had I not journeyed, I would not have found it.

Oh, you perhaps misunderstand my quote as well. The quote " Ashes to Ashes, Dust to Dust "
is used in funerals to signify that in the end, a mans's journey ultimately returns back to his origins.

Brilliantly written, and I am just beginning to appreciate the wisdom behind it.

It is the gift of poets that they capture in a stanza what I would not be able to describe in a ream.
