"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."
Robert Frost

However, the poet admits earlier in the poem that the roads "Had worn them really about the same," and that the choice to take the road less traveled was one of future recollection, but of no less import.
