The end of a path is where it points,
the point where it ends.
Stops are punctuation marks (Latin punctum, a prick, point or spot). What is a period? A full stop, or a space of time? It comes from the Greek peri hodos, which means ‘road around.’ Think fast, or fast from thinking, and you find yourself back at the starting point before you’ve left. Stop here.
On a continuous line, a point is punctuation.
In speech, a pause is punctuation.
In written language a space is punctuation.
