Here are some quotes to illustrate the importance of taking your path.

Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.
Mark Twain

I took the one less traveled by
And that has made all the difference.
Robert Frost, “The Road Not Taken”

All courses of action are risky, so prudence is not in avoiding danger (it’s impossible), but calculating risk and acting decisively. Make mistakes of ambition and not mistakes of sloth. Develop the strength to do bold things, not the strengths to suffer.
Niccolò Machiavelli, “The Prince”

Every wall is a door.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
