THE ROAD NOT TAKEN.
« on: September 30, 2010, 07:13:39 PM »
By 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
To where it bent in the undergrowth.

The 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.

Or, my favorite, (irc a reply to a media question about a problematic player leaving the team) ... "Addition by subtraction." 

It fits so well in so many situations!
" ... because it is CUR-Tailed."
