T.S. Eliot's Little Gidding contains the following lines:
We must not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we began
And to know the place for the first time.
Are there any idioms or expressions which communicate this same idea of a sort of circular journey which achieves a beginner’s mindset in less words? Or even maybe just a paraphrasing of the quote which cuts down Eliot's word count. Basically is there any expression or string of words you know of that connote the idea of 'knowing a place you've known your whole life for the first time'.
