    Re: take a low road

    When used as a metaphor, if you take the high road, it means that you act with the highest level of integrity and a commitment to do things the morally right way.

    The low road would be doing whatever it takes to get your way.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
