The Road Not Taken

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… 119 more words

The Road Not Taken*(with a little twist)

When two roads diverged in a yellow wood,

I took neither. I built my own trail

amidst the thorns and conifers

donning my rebel snood. 62 more words

Bankers Take The Road Taken, Bakers Take The Road Not Taken 銀行家與麵包師的路

迎合社會的標準,比起走Robert Frost的The Road Not Taken要輕鬆。

獲得世俗認為的成功條件也要經過許多考驗,但身邊大多數人都在嚮往和稱羨這些東西,辛苦好像也是正常事,馬上又說服自己走下去。

順隨自己所定義的美好日子,走上舉目無親的路,遇到不測之風雲,誰膽怯誰就哭著折返。

在這資本和大企業世代,就精神層面上遇到的壓力而言,當個baker的路比當個banker的路要艱辛。

追求世人普遍認為的「成功」:美貌、地位、權力、名譽等等,過程也許辛苦,但碰璧的時候,想到身邊所有人都在維此奔馳,就能繼續。

實現自己心中的理想生活:去義教、吃素、領養小動物、開畫廊…… 若遇困難,相對上容易放棄,會質疑自己苦苦堅持的傻勁,因為主流媒體不會提醒你從事這項工程的價值。為免陷入自我懷疑之中,必須主動接觸有共同愛好的同伴,以供給繼續努力的士氣。

周國平先生說過:「一個平庸的人,即使他在名利場上風光十足,他也只是在混日子,至多是混得好一些罷了。」雖然The Road Not Taken比較難行,但能把路走完的,定是位非凡勇者。

THE CHARM OF AUTHENTIC ITALY

As I left the heel of Italy to meander slowly home to Geneva I had a rich choice:  south-west to Sicily and a boat to Genoa; travel up the west coast of Italy through Naples, Pompeii and Rome; or follow the lesser known east coast for a while.  1,178 more words

3 Poems that I love

Poetry is one of the genres of literature that is definitely not for everyone and at first, I thought that it wasn’t for me as because I found difficulty in understanding the figurative language used and reading in between the lines. 1,056 more words
