from T.S. Eliot “Little Gidding”
"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"
I was thinking about the Hero's Journey and the way that some writers use it as a method of story structure and I saw this quote and I thought--yeah, that's it. The stages and the specifics of the "journey" structure can be somewhat helpful if not followed too closely, but this right here is what I'm trying to get at with my quest story.
