Answer: The rocky path symbolizes challenges, obstacles, and difficulties in life that require determination and courage to overcome.

Question 4: Why is the reader urged to travel the rocky path?

Answer: The reader is urged to travel the rocky path because it leads to personal growth, glory, and achievement, unlike the easy and crowded paths where personal development may be limited.
