Good morning Paul! What a true quote and one we would do well to remember! There are many roads and many destinations that we all travel!

We all have our own path and are often not on the same path as anyone else.


Enjoy your day!

Good morning Paul. We normally can find many paths to the destination. Some are just less travelled. Enjoy your day.

All roads lead to somewhere and even dead ends could end up becoming quite an adventure!

What a fantastic photo, Paul... that's the kind of place I'd love to walk along. And perfect for today's quote... no right or wrong road... just what's right or wrong for each of us.

Oh yes, different paths ( roads ) are an expected aspect of life. It would be pretty dull - and crowded - if we all thought there was only one trail to our destination.

Hi Paul - they have taken the road less traveled which makes the difference.

The road less traveled is often the most interesting.

Paul since I was a kid my Dad would always say - let's take the scenic route and get off the beaten path!  That had many meanings ......wise man!

So true, Paul.  If they aren't on our road, then it just may be that we are the ones who are lost.

Hi Paul:

That is certainly a very thoughtful and insightful quote! There are many roads people can travel and ours is certainly not the only one. Great picture to ram home the point!
