“A bend in the road is not the end of the road…unless you fail to make the turn”

"A bend in the road is not the end of the road..,unless you fail to make the turn” is an inspirational saying that has been printed on many images. The saying originated on a popular poster produced by Successories in 1996.

American journalist, author and a television host Joan Lunden wrote the book Joan Lunden’s A Bend in the Road Is Not the End of the Road: 10 Positive Principles for Dealing with Change (1998), but did not originate the saying.

“‘Change: A bend in the road is not the end of the road…Unless you fail to make the turn.’— Helen Keller #quote” was posted on Twitter on September 1, 2009, but American author, political activist and lecturer Helen Keller (1880-1968) never said it.
