There are two things that cannot be taken back- the sped arrow and the spoken word.

― Jane Casey, The Missing

“You are born with the yearning arrow, my Glynna, though you are not yet fully aware of it. It is not a happy thing to possess, for nothing on earth – no goal, no person how ever beloved – will answer it. It points to the sky and to the heavens and the stars and when it cannot reach them, it must fall back to pierce your heart.”

Isobelle Carmody, Darkfall
