Whither as to what place, whereever

I fancy archaic words.

Just came across this word whither these two days.

But I still wonder how it was possible, in those graceless years of transition, long ago, that men did not see whither they were going, and went on, in blindness and cowardice , to their fate.

 Wonder whether it's a legit way of using the word whither:

When starting to work on my book, I didin't see whither I was going?

I especially like the part "whither though goest"--feels mighty kimoji...
