Poetical Quotes

18 Jul

Getting a little poetical today, even if there is no rhyme nor reason to it (heh, see what I did there… yeah, yeah, I know, I’m terrible, even for pointing that out). Start things off with a well known one by Robert Frost.

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I-
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
~Robert Frost, 1920

Continuing on with something more akin to a proverb. Originally, I didn’t know who this quote was attributed to.  Now I can finally put a name to the words.

“It is better to look ahead and prepare, than to look back and regret.” ~Jackie Joyner-Kersee

Finally, something that could be seen as dreadful and ominous, only because of the individual who wrote it.  As well, it’s very, very interesting how this is reflected in our current state of the world.

“The sciences, each straining in its own direction, have hitherto harmed us little; but some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position within, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the deadly light into the peace and safety of a new dark age.” ~H.P. Lovecraft, The Call of Cthulhu
