Robert Frost poem quote

  Robert Frost was born in San Francisco and studied at Harvard University. He variously worked as a teacher, cobbler, and farmer for a time. It was during an extended visit to England (1912-1915) that such publications as "A Boy's Will" and "North of Boston" began to gain him an international reputation.

  He returned to the U.S.A. and became a teacher at several Universities. His poetry continued to win acclaim including several Pulitzer Prizes. His last collection of poetry entitled "In the Clearing" appeared in 1962.

  I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I - 
I took the road less travelled by,
And that has made all the difference. 

[ quotations]


  Scholars get their knowledge with conscientious thoroughness along projected lines of logic; poets theirs cavalierly and as it happens in and out of books. They stick to nothing deliberately, but let what will stick to them like burrs where they walk in the fields.



   A diplomat is a man who always remembers a
womans birthday but never remembers her age.




  Most of the change we think we see in life is due to truths being in and out of favor.




  Education is the ability to listen to almost anything without losing your temper.




  A jury consists of twelve persons chosen to decide who has the better lawyer.




  A liberal is a man too broadminded to take his own side in a quarrel.




  And nothing to look backward to with pride, 
And nothing to look forward to with hope.
