Passage

Not gold, but only men can make

A people great and strong

Men who, for truth and honour’s sake,

Stand fast and suffer long.

Brave men who work while others sleep,

Who dare while others fly

They build a nation’s pillars deep.

And lift them to the Sky.

– RW Emerson

Passage

The Road Not Taken

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,

And sorry I could not travel both

And be one traveller, 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 travelled by,

And that has made all the differences.

– Robert Frost
