Who said it and can you fill in the blanks?

From memory it goes something like: "We begin on a journey, and having journeyed afar we return to the place we began , only to know it for the first time"

"You shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our journeying
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time."
~ Eliot, T. S. in 'Little Gidding V', from 'Four Quartets' 1942

found a slightly different version at this webpage

"We shall not cease from exploring,
And the end of our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time."
~T.S. Eliot

I now know also what T.S. Eliot meant when he said that we never cease our exploration; so that some day, we may return home and know the place for the first time.
