Happy Birthday, Robert Frost!

Robert Frost is one of my favorite poets, and as his birthday happens to fall today, I thought he needed a post of his own.  Happy Birthday, Robert Frost!

“In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: it goes on.”  
“Love is an irresistible desire to be irresistibly desired.”  
“Some say the world will end in fire,Some say in ice.From what I've tasted of desire,I hold with those who favor fire. But if it had to perish twiceI think I know enough of hateTo say that for destruction iceIs also greatAnd would suffice.” 
“If we couldn't laugh we would all go insane.” 
“Education is the ability to listen to almost anything without losing your temper or your self-confidence.”
“Half the world is composed of people who have something to say and can't, and the other half who have nothing to say and keep on saying it.” 
“Happiness makes up in height for what it lacks in length.” 
“Nature's first green is gold,Her hardest hue to hold.Her early leaf's a flower;But only so an hour.Then leaf subsides to leaf.So Eden sank to grief,So dawn goes down to day.Nothing gold can stay.”   
“Don't ever take a fence down until you know why it was put up.”
