Quote of the Day: Life’s Knowledge

“In three words I can sum up everything I’ve learned about life: It goes on.”

Robert Frost

Robert Frost was an American poet who lived from 1874 to 1963. He is one of the most popular and critically acclaimed poets in American literature. His work often dealt with rural life in New England, using clear and simple language to describe the natural world and the everyday lives of the people who lived there.

Frost is best known for his use of rural imagery and the spoken language in his poetry, and he is often associated with the New England School of poets, which includes such writers as Emily Dickinson and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. He is also known for his use of literary devices such as metaphor and symbolism, which helped to give his poetry a deeper and more complex meaning.

Frost received four Pulitzer Prizes for poetry, during his lifetime and was also awarded several other honors and awards. He also was the poet laureate of Vermont and the US and was appointed to this position on several occasions.

Frost’s poetry is widely taught in schools and universities, and his work continues to be popular with readers of all ages. His most famous poems include “The Road Not Taken,” “Mending Wall,” “The Death of the Hired Man,” “After Apple-Picking,” “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening,” and “Birches.”

This quote, attributed to Robert Frost, is a reflection on the nature of life and the human experience. It suggests that the speaker has learned that life is a continuous process that keeps moving forward, regardless of the ups and downs, joys and sorrows, and successes and failures that one may encounter. It implies that no matter what happens, time keeps passing, and life goes on.

The quote can be interpreted as both a reminder of the impermanence and transience of life and a call to embrace change and not get bogged down by the past. It can also be seen as a message of resilience and determination, encouraging people to keep going despite the difficulties they may face.

The quote can also be seen as a reminder that one should not take life too seriously and enjoy the moment while it lasts, as it will ultimately come to an end. It is sometimes used as a reminder to focus on the present and live in the moment, rather than dwelling on the past or worrying about the future.

Overall, the quote means that despite all the difficulties, heartbreaks, and disappointments one may face in life, it will always move forward and one must learn to adapt to it and keep going with it. So we move forward today!

  1. “And so it goes”. Kurt Vonnegut.

    A recent Simon and Garfunkel “… and you read your Emily Dickenson, and I, my Robert Frost”, (the Dangling Conversation), took me back more than 50 years to studying at school some of Frost’s more famous poems.

    He was prodigious- and a great read 😊
