What is golden arrow?

Famous quotes containing the words arrow and/or golden:

    Anton Petrovich turned into the passage, followed the arrow to men, mankind, human beings, marched past the toilet, past the kitchen, gave a start when a cat darted under his feet, quickened his step, reached the end of the passage, pushed open a door, and a shower of sunlight splashed his face.
    Vladimir Nabokov (1899–1977)

    His golden locks time hath to silver turned;
    O time too swift, O swiftness never ceasing!
    His youth ‘gainst time and age hath ever spurned,
    But spurned in vain; youth waneth by increasing.
    Beauty, strength, youth are flowers but fading seen;
    Duty, faith, love are roots, and ever green.
    George Peele (1559–1596)
