"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..." - Robert Frost

"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..." - Robert Frost
