Robert Lee Frost was an American poet. He is highly regarded for his realistic depictions of rural life, he went to college but never earned a formal college degree.
Frost drifted through a string of occupations after leaving school, working as a teacher, cobbler, and editor of the Lawrence Sentinel. Today’s quote is the last stanza of his famous poem Road Not Taken.
“ I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference”.
Frost is just saying Life is difficult. Choices are hard at times. By and by, he made a choice. He takes the road less traveled by. He chooses not to conform. He chooses to be a unique individual. He does not follow the crowd.
It is easy to make simple choices, it is easy to do what everyone is doing. But the unique choices we make is what makes us standout. Peace!
