Robert Lee Frost (March 26, 1874 – January 29, 1963) was an American poet. His work was initially published in England before it was published in America.

In three words I can sum up everything I’ve learned about life: it goes on.

What is done is done for the love of it- or not really done at all.

We love the things we love for what they are.

- Robert Frost

Love is an irresistible desire to be irresistibly desired.

- Robert Frost

The heart can think of no devotion Greater than being shore to the ocean- Holding the curve of one position, Counting an endless repetition.

- Robert Frost

I’d like to get away from earth awhile And then come back to it and begin over. May no fate wilfully misunderstand me And half grant what I wish and snatch me away Not to return. Earth’s the right place for love: I don’t know where it’s likely to go better.

- Robert Frost

These woods are lovely, dark and deep, But I have promises to keep, And miles to go before I sleep, And miles to go before I sleep.

- Robert Frost

And were an epitaph to be my story I’d have a short one ready for my own. I would have written of me on my stone: I had a lover’s quarrel with the world.

- Robert Frost

Poetry is a way of taking life by the throat.

- Robert Frost

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I – I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference.

I am not a teacher, but an awakener.

Don’t ever take a fence down until you know why it was put up.

There are two kinds of teachers: the kind that fill you with so much quail shot that you can’t move, and the kind that just gives you a little prod behind and you jump to the skies.

We dance round in a ring and suppose, But the Secret sits in the middle and knows.
