Life's point of no return

From my offline journal, dated June 30, 2002, two quotes from Markings, by Dag Hammarskjöld:
There is a point at which everything becomes simple and there is no longer any question of choice, because all you have staked will be lost if you look back. Life's point of no return (p. 66).

Dare [she], for whom circumstances make it possible to realize [her] true destiny, refuse it simply because [she] is not prepared to give up everything else? (p. 67)
