I’m not afraid of storms,
for I’m learning how to sail my ship.
Louisa May Alcott
To reach a port we must set sail
Sail, not tie at anchor
Sail, not drift.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than those you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from safe harbor. Catch the wind in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
If one does not know to which port one is sailing, no wind is favorable.
Lucius Annaeus Seneca
Thought is the wind, knowledge the sail, and mankind the vessel.
The sooner we learn to be jointly responsible, the easier the sailing will be.
To desire nothing beyond what you have is surely happiness. Aboard a boat, it is frequently possible to achieve just that. That is why sailing is a way of life, one of the finest of lives.
Without goals, and plans to reach them, you are like a ship that has set sail with no destination.
The pessimist complains about the wind; the optimist expects it to change; the realist adjusts the sails.
William Arthur Ward
The wind and the waves are always on the side of the ablest navigator.
