You can’t see what’s coming.

I’ll never know, and neither will you, of the life you don’t choose. We’ll only know that whatever that sister life was, it was important and beautiful and not ours. It was the ghost ship that didn’t carry us. There’s nothing to do but salute it from the shore.

— Cheryl Strayed

Some paths are more difficult to choose than the others.

The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost

It really has made all the difference.
