The quote from Willa Cather, “The end is nothing; the road is all.” The quote means that the journey to getting to the end is more important than the outcome of the journey.

Therefore, the result is no result if there is no way to reach it, and so Willa Cather had once said, “The end is nothing; the road is all.” And I am inclined to concur with this writer.

Throughout both All the Pretty Horses and The Road, McCarthy uses his own life experiences to develop ideas within his books. For instance, in The Road McCarthy addresses religion frequently as the man and other characters they meet often question the existence of a god due to the horrible situation that god has put him in. Since McCarty was raised Catholic, many have seen within his books, such as Blood Meridian and Suttree, that he himself may mistrust his beliefs and as he grew older, he has doubted
three carpe diem poems (To The Virgins, To Make Much Of Time by Robert Herrick, The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost, and All The World At Stage by William Shakespeare ) each has their own subjects to which they use the tone, speaker, and purpose of supporting. There are clearly numerous of similarities as well as differences in these poems as they are written by different poets with the same messages. Reading all three of the poems, I gathered several informative notes that would help me know how
Jim’s car is swerving all over the road so a cop pulls him over, “Step out of the car” says the cop, “I am going to need you to take a breathalyzer test.” “I can’t”, Jim responds “You see I have very bad asthma, that can set off an attack.” “Alright,” says the cop, “then you’re going to have to take a blood test.” “Can’t do that either,” Jim responds, “I am a hemophiliac, if a wound is opened, I won’t stop bleeding, and I could bleed to death.” “Ok,” the cop answers “then I will need a urine sample
Her parents didn’t want to leave with her yet as they claim that they have business to accomplish and will meet her up in a few months.

The 1 reason that kind of spoke to me, what that there were A LOT, and I mean A LOT of Roads in Rome.
“The end is nothing, the road is all,” is a quote by Willa Cather which to me means to not worry about destiny or how life will turn out in the end, but to enjoy the journey. I feel like most, if not all, people can relate to this quote through past experiences or even current obstacles being faced. I agree with Willa because in my opinion, it is more important to think about the steps that are needed to take to reach this end goal in life that everyone wants. It is best to have awareness focused
once said, “The end is nothing; the road is all.” It doesn't matter how things turn out, it's the journey that really matters. That's where you learn the most and are able to grow as a person.

This quotes shows us that through rocky times with ourselves, others, or life in general, that what matters most is not the result, but the road taken to where we are now.
