Small steps lead us to more significant things.

Following someone's footsteps gives you a better picture of what the journey might hold for you. They are like someone's experience for your betterment.

Sometimes, following footsteps is linked to understanding your elders' experiences and care. They have been on the path that you will start. Many a time, you fear some small steps, and, eventually, those fearful steps only make you walk on the path which will lead to your desired place. Taking the path alone is tough, but as said in the poem 'The Road Not Taken', such traveled roads also hold better places than you expect. Here we have listed some authors who have different approaches to the footsteps that a journey requires and their experiences of their walk of life, and we hope you will like it.
