A crossroads is a point where two or more roads intersect, forming a junction. It can also figuratively refer to a point in life where a critical decision must be made which will substantially influence the future.
In folk magic and mythology, crossroads may represent a location "between the worlds" and, as such, a site where supernatural spirits can be contacted and paranormal events can take place. Symbolically, it can mean a locality where two realms touch and therefore represents liminality, a place literally "neither here nor there", "betwixt and between".
The Afterlife, mostly heaven. See you at the crossroads so you wont be lonely -- Bone Thugs-N-Harmony (Tha Crossroads)

We are at a crossroads, with big and important new programs now launched and the budget carefully balanced, the challenge is to build for the future, not steal from it, to live within our means and to keep California ever golden and creative, as our forebears have shown and our descendents would expect.
More than any other time in history, mankind faces a crossroads. One path leads to despair and utter hopelessness. The other, to total extinction. Let us pray we have the wisdom to choose correctly.
At every crossroads on the path that leads to the future, tradition has placed 10,000 men to guard the past.
The right time was at the crossroads With a future in his plans The wrong time reapproaches With right time's suitcase in hand The right time asks, how 's the journey The wrong time said the 'whether' turned me around. The right time, shakes his head, Shakes his hand and leaves Before the sun goes down.
Be entirely tolerant or not at all; follow the good path or the evil one. To stand at the crossroads requires more strength than you possess.
