More Inspiring Quotes: Day 1

Even though Saturday was the last day of my quote-a-day project, there's still several more quotes that I didn't post that I love.  So for the next little while I'll do one of those every day, or one every other day, or something like that.  Anyway, here's one. This totally makes me think of the definition of a classic.

"Just because you've seen something doesn't mean you'll stop looking.  There's always something you didn't see before."
-Lloyd Alexander

Inspiring Quotes: Day 25

The Road Not Taken

"Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I
I took the one less traveled bey,
And that has made all the difference."
-Robert Frost

Music Survey

I'm working on a big research project on music for school.  To collect information, I'm doing an online survey.  Please follow the link to the survey. http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/ZR3HFK5
It's only seven questions, so it won't take long.  Please send this to as many people as you can.  I want to get it out to lots of people (especially teens) ASAP.
Thank you!
