Context

“he returned; «all the doors you had yet seen—and you haven't seen many—were doors in; here you came upon a door out! The strange thing to you,» he went on thoughtfully, «will be, that the more doors you go out of, the farther you get in!»
«Oblige me by telling me where I am.»
«That is impossible. You know nothing about whereness. The only way to come to know where you are is to begin to make yourself at home.»
«How am I to begin that where everything is so strange?»
«By doing something.»
«What?»
«Anything; and the sooner you begin the better! for until you are at home, you will find it as difficult to get out as it is to get in.»” source
