The arrow has many meanings.
Ever since ancient times the arrow has symbolized power, swiftness, and knowledge in addition to representing love stemming from the use of the arrow in Greek mythology by Eros (Cupid).
In more recent times, the arrow has also come to represent perseverance following ones path. An arrow has to be pulled back in order to spring forward. This parallels life in many ways. Often we have to step back in order to move forward. Hard times often serve to prepare us for better times ahead. In addition, these setbacks or hard times often build strength and prepare us to better face the next challenge ahead. Thus like an arrow, pull back and spring forward- preserve and follow your path. Life is lived once, don't hold back- AIM HIGH!!
