“What, sir, would you make a ship sail against the wind and currents by lighting a bonfire under her deck; I pray you excuse me. I have no time to listen to such nonsense.”
“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.”
“It's not the towering sail, but the unseen wind that moves the ship”
“Thats what a ship is, you know. Its not a keel and a hull and a deck and sails. Thats what a ship needs. But what a ship is. What the Black Pearl really is . . . is freedom.”
“The pessimist complains about the wind; the optimist expects it to change; the realist adjusts the sails.”
William Arthur Ward
“A wet sheet and a flowing sea, / A wind that follows fast / And fills the white and rustling sail / And bends the gallant mast.”
