The following quote is taken from Dragonfly In Amber by Diana Gabaldon, chapter 46 Timor Mortis Conturbat Me. Copyright (c) 1992 by Diana Gabaldon. All rights reserved.

“This was our final parting, and we could find no way to say goodbye.
At last, he smiled crookedly, bent, and kissed me gently on the lips.
‘They say...’ he began, and stopped to clear his throat. ‘They say, in the old days, when a man would go forth to do a great deed - he would find a wisewoman, and ask her to bless him. He would stand looking forth, in the direction he would go, and she would come behind him, to say the words of prayer over him. When she had finished, he would walk straight out, and not look back, for that was ill-luck to his quest.’
He touched my face once, and turned away, facing the open door. The sun streamed in, lighting his hair in a thousand flames. He straightened his shoulders, broad beneath his plaid, and drew a deep breath.
‘Bless me, then, wisewoman,’ he said softly, ‘and go.’ “
