“If one does not know to which port one is sailing, no wind is favorable.”
“One ship drives east and other drives west by the same winds that blow. It's the set of the sails and not the gales that determines the way they go.”
Ella Wheeler Wilcox
“Desire is the wind in your sails more than it is your destination, so keep your sails wide open, and be amazed.”
“The pessimist complains about the wind; the optimist expects it to change; the realist adjusts the sails.”
William Arthur Ward
“To reach a port we must sail, sometimes with the wind, and sometimes against it. But we must not drift or lie at anchor.”
Oliver Wendell Holmes
“A wet sheet and a flowing sea, / A wind that follows fast / And fills the white and rustling sail / And bends the gallant mast.”
“That took a lot of wind out of our sails. A lot of guys said 'Oh my' after that one. It was a bad snap and a bad punt.”
