8:22am: et semel emissum volat irrevocabile verbum
(and a word once uttered flies abroad never to be recalled" [Horace)]

or, to repurpose something parallel I've heard attributed to browngirl:

"That which is said cannot be unsaid."

But it's better to know than not, eh?

Thanks to dpolicar for the Latin expression.
9:52am: Speaking of quotes, dpolicar made reference to one from the Narnia books.
He can't remember the exact phrasing, and I can't find it on the web, so I'm giving crowdsourcing it a try.

At one point, the lion says something along the lines of "It is not given for mortals to know the outcome of the path we did not take."

Anyone know what the actual quote is?

Thanks in advance!
5:56pm: It takes a community to be poly.
And for all of you who help me with advice and comfort, thank you. I am so lucky to have you all in my life.

I would shout-out by name, but then this post would get very long, and outing some of you would be rude. :)
