  • Media Recognition

  • How far?

    "We shall not cease from exploration

    And at the end of all our exploring

    Will be to arrive where we started

    And know the place for the first time...

    ...only those who will risk going too far

    Can possibly find out how far one can go.


    - T.S Eliot
