Known as “America’s Poet”, Robert Frost was born in 1874 and died in 1963. There are many websites which give detailed biographical information such as Online Literature and Bartleby.com. He was also known for his witty quotations, some of which can be found here.
Reading through some of the information, what struck me was that this was a man of many experiences, good and bad. So many people simply accept the life they are born into and never venture to explore and to expand their horizons. Frost started and stopped many educational endeavors, travelled, worked as a reporter and as a teacher and lecturer and wrote thousands of poems and articles.
Here are two of his more famous poems we especially like… The Road Not Taken (1915) and Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening (1923)
