Bullet

Every bullet has its billet. Nothing happens by chance, and no act is altogether without some effect.

“There is a divinity that shapes our ends, rough hew them as we will.” Another meaning is this: an arrow or bullet is not discharged at random, but at some mark or for some deliberate purpose.

“Let the arrow fly that has a mark.” —Caesar borgia chap. xx.
