A Quote by Robert Lee Frost on earth, fate, love, and wishes

I'd like to get away from earth awhile And then come back to it and begin over. May no fate willfully 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.

A bank is a place where they lend you an umbrella in fair weather and ask for it back when it begins to rain.

A Quote by Robert Lee Frost on people and society

The best things and best people rise out of their separateness; I'm against a homogenized society because I want the cream to rise.

A Quote by Robert Lee Frost on belief, change, and life

Why abandon a belief merely because it ceases to be true? Cling to it long enough and it will turn true again, for so it goes. Most of the change we think we see in life is due to truths being in and out of favor.

A Quote by Robert Lee Frost on business, country, justice, and world

We get twitted now and then on how we made this country. Well, we took the whole business, of course. It's not just that corner that we took from Mexico. When we got it all together, we got a very shapely country-the best continental cut in all the world, between the two oceans and in the right temperature zone.
