Both "If Life Deceives You" and "The Road Not Chosen" have special backgrounds, the former written during the author's exile, the latter due to the author's friend's regretful experience after his choice. The former is a sage advice to people in trouble, while the latter expresses his thoughts on the path of life through the path of nature. The former expresses his thoughts without any imagery, while the latter uses a series of imagery to express his philosophy.
