-Where does this road lead?

There's two ways - and one of them everybody knows - but if you wanted to go that way, you probably would have gone already. There's the other way - but anyone who figures out how to go that way, doesn't stick around long enough to speak about it. But everybody goes eventually, one way or another.

-What does that mean?

I've been wondering about that. Someone told me, long ago, but I cannot remember. It seems like nonsense to me. Sometimes it seems like something more. But the seeming doesn't matter. You should be mindful of that.

Some talk in a roundabout way, and perhaps seem smart - perhaps - but others will talk in a straightforward way, and that may seem them smart as well. But it's not the seeming that matters. Look for utility in what is said.

-That sounds reasonable.

But how can you be sure? Words mean what a speaker likes to say. What is it that you want to hear? Can you be sure it is the same?

-All I want is to know where to go next.

Well, the road only leads this way.

-So I should go that way?

Go whichever way is best, or perhaps whichever way would please you. But which is which?

-Why do you linger here?

If not for me, then who would direct you?

Ah, this is very stylishly done. Crisp and clean too, which is nice to see.
