  1. Hey, Marie! There are some pretty great quotes on here… however, what do you make of the Kate Middleton one? What do you think she’s actually trying to say because I can’t really make sense of it..

    I’d like to share something with you which I have found quite inspiring as I’ve been doing extra reading for my A Levels.. it’s a short poem during which the writer (Robert Frost) reflects on his life decisions…

    The Road Not Taken – by Robert Frost (1874-1963)

    Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
    And sorry I could not travel both
    And be one traveller, long I stood
    And looked down one as far as I could
    To where it bent in the undergrowth;

    Then took the other, as just as fair,
    And having perhaps the better claim,
    Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
    Though as for that the passing there
    Had worn them really about the same,

    And both that morning equally lay
    In leaves no step had trodden black.
    Oh, I kept the first for another day!
    Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
    I doubted if I should ever come back.

    I shall be telling this with a sigh
    Somewhere ages and ages hence:
    Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
    I took the one less travelled by,
    And that has made all the difference.

    I hope you enjoy it; Thanks for another great post 🙂

    1. I love this Sam! Thanks so much for sharing – I too believe that it is sometimes the path that is untrodden where our destiny lies. I have no real resources on this (obviously) but I think it’s just a comment that displays her trying to connect with civilians and show us that she is just a normal girl (now woman) that wasn’t always tied down by responsibility, expectations & duties, nor defined by William. Does that make sense? Xx
