The poet caught the sense of this when he penned these words…
To every man there openeth
A Way, and Ways, and a Way.
The high soul climbs the High Way,
The Low Soul gropes the Low.
And in between, on the misty flats,
The rest drift to and fro.
But to every man there openeth
A High Way and a Low
And every man decideth
The which his soul shall go.
