The moving finger writes; and having writ,
Moves on: nor all your Piety nor Wit
Shall lure it back to cancel half a line,
Nor all your Tears wash out a Word of it.

(Edward Fitzgerald (1809-1883), British writer, poet, translator. The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, stanza 71 (1859). On the unalterability of the past.)
With earth's first clay they did the last man knead,
There of the last harvest sowed the seed,
And what the first morning of creation wrote,
The last dawn of reckoning shall read.

(Edward Fitzgerald (1809-1883), British writer, poet, and translator. The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, stanza 73 (1859). Classic expression of determinism.)
