take the road less traveled

take the road less traveled

To pursue a less popular or common option. The phrase is typically associated with Robert Frost's 1916 poem, "The Road Not Taken." I have always encouraged my children to take the road less traveled in life, instead of simply going along with what everyone else thinks is the right path. You certainly took the road less traveled when you quit your job to do art full-time, but are you any happier than you were before?
