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.

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I, I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference. - - The famous lines by the poet. These lines also my favourite lines. These lines are applicable in everyday life - A successful person works differently. I love this poem too much.
If the road you've taken didn't take you where you wanted to go, the road you've not taken must have been the right way to get there. But, if you're lazy to walk the walk, I wouldn't think it matters...
It's one of my beloved poems which I translated into Russian.
So lovely poem and inspiring one....10 The roads lay open The roads lay open For us to reach heaven If we have driven with resolve All problems can be solved I chose the road That seemed with full of dangerous trend The roaring of lion was heard I asked heard to find word The reply came straight way I was to concentrate and pay My whole attention towards goal I responded to sincere call The road was not smooth And threatened with death But I surged ahead with determination It paid rich dividend and earned distinction Roads may present deceptive outlook But we need to shake the head Think in positive terms And turn the tide in favor
This peice is nothing but greatness! it Makes me think bravely.. straight to my fav.
