„We stand now where two roads diverge. But unlike the roads in Robert Frost's familiar poem, they are not equally fair.“

—  Rachel Carson, Context: We stand now where two roads diverge. But unlike the roads in Robert Frost's familiar poem, they are not equally fair. The road we have long been traveling is deceptively easy, a smooth superhighway on which we progress with great speed, but at its end lies disaster. The other fork of the road — the one less traveled by — offers our last, our only chance to reach a destination that assures the preservation of the earth. p. 277

„It's a rough road and a steep road and it stretches broad and far,
But at last it leads to a golden Town where golden Houses are.“

—  Joyce Kilmer American poet, editor, literary critic, soldier 1886 - 1918
Context: They say that life is a highway and its milestones are the years, And now and then there's a toll-gate where you buy your way with tears. It's a rough road and a steep road and it stretches broad and far, But at last it leads to a golden Town where golden Houses are. "Roofs"
