Everyone knows the quote about staring into the abyss. The abyss staring back. Have you actually read the book that it appears in?
Me either, but I think it’s Nietzsche’s Beyond Good and Evil. I have totally downloaded it to my Kindle. That link goes to the free version of the book on Project Gutenberg, and you can download it there and read it on any e-reader you want (for free!), or just on your computer screen. I love Project Gutenberg. It’s a great idea that has been around since the very early days of the web.

Panel 3. TV walks away from the tree, back to the reader.
TV (thinking): You've nothing there to find. Only new questions. Like, "Where Am I? How do I get back?"
