Wisdom

President Gordon B. Hinckley

“It is not enough just to be good. You must be good for something. You must contribute good to the world. The world must be a better place for your presence. And the good that is in you must be spread to others.”





The Road Not Taken
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair,

And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay

In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.
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.
Robert Frost

    Nice one Shi.
    Is it not so difficult? I struggle with that daily...the courage to take the road less travelled.

    Nice poem.

  2. Hi shi
    I always tell myself that i took the road less travelled, lakini hii yangu iko na ma-pothole deadly!
    I love the ambiguity of the last line: it can be whatever you think it is.
    Really inspiring.
