That's a beautiful quote from T. S. Eliot, is that an excerpt from a larger work?

TS Elliot wrote a poetry book called " The Four Quartets." All the poems seem to deal with time. The quote is from "Little Gidding," one of the four long poems in that book.

However, I first saw the quote as an epigraph in "The Magus' by John Fowles.
