Buddhist Preachers and Teachers
The world's end can never be reached by means of traveling through the world, Yet without reaching the world's end there is no release from suffering. Therefore, truly, the world-knower, the wise one, gone to the world's end, fulfiller of the holy life, having known the world's end, at peace, longs not for this world or another.
-Buddha, "The Connected Discourses of the Buddha"
