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, as just as fair, ...... 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 by, and that has made all the difference. - Robert Frost
(1933) Notes: Angelica, Tuberose, Amber, Incense, Vanilla Ethereal, mystical, deep, but in a strangely wide-eyed, transparent way. It is the soul of freshness, yet slightly earthy; clean, yet subtly sensuous. This is a gem from the 1930's. It seems to soft-pedal the distinctive Creed ambergris basenote, rendering it more diffuse, harder to pin down to the flesh; it even seems to float in and out after the first three hours or so. A haunting fragrance, eminently worthy of the magisterial House of Creed.
Yr good bud,
"Why spend life seeking that which does not satisfy? Why remain a slave, when freedom waits? Let your life shine; illumine the world with your truth!"
Fiat justitia ruat cælum.
Let justice be done, even if the sky should fall. — Lucius Calpurnius Piso Caesoninus Qui nihil potest sperare, desperet nihil.
Let him who can hope for nothing despair of nothing.
Male irato ferrum committitur. It is an evil thing to arm an angry man. —Seneca

It’s thought that people who hope too much will just waste their life away and never get down to doing any real work. They’re confusing Hope with Wish, its lazy cousin... When Wish whispers, “Something is just around the corner,” what comes or not is never what was wished for. When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson

“… [I] recall thinking that the computer would never advance much further than this. Call me naïve, but I seemed to have underestimated the universal desire to sit in a hard plastic chair and stare at a screen until your eyes cross.” ~ David Sedaris
