“I had said goodbye to her once before, but it took everything
I had to say goodbye to her then, again, for the last time,
like poor Orpheus turning for a last backward glance at the ghost
of his only love and in the same heartbeat losing her forever:
hinc illae lacrimae, hence those tears.”


~ Donna Tartt ~

  1. “I wanted to glance one last time over my shoulder, but there was no reason to. Looking behind would only show me the things I’d seen, and everything of importance I could always see” ~ A. Lee Martinez
