Let’s hear from Robert Frost

Here are just a few quotes reflecting the wit and wisdom of Robert Frost. If you are like me, I read his poetry and was taught about him in school. He actually recited an original poem at JFK’s inauguration. Enjoy, experience Robert Frost with these quotes.

(Plus, I added one of my own!)

On neighbors…

Don’t ever take a fence down until you know why it was put up.

On writing…

Writing free verse is like playing tennis with the net down.

On the court system…

A jury consists of 12 persons chosen to decide who has the better lawyer.

I have also heard that when you are on trial, just remember that you are putting your fate into the hands of 12 people who were not smart enough to get out of jury duty.
