Favorite quotes
Al andar se hace camino
Y al volver la vista atrás
Se ve la senda que nunca
Se ha de volver a pisar.
Caminante no hay camino sino estelas en la mar.     ~ Antonio Machado

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.    ~ Robert Frost
