I am not afraid of storms, for I'm learning how to sail my ship.
Louisa May Alcott
It is not the ship so much as the skillful sailing that assures the prosperous voyage.
George William Curtis
The pessimist complains about the wind; the optimist expects it to change; the realist adjust the sails.
William Arthur Ward
The wind and the waves are always on the side of the ablest navigator.
I hate storms but calms undermine my spirits.
It is not that life ashore is distasteful to me. But life at sea is better.
Sir Francis Drake
At sea, I learned how little a person needs, not how much.
Robin Lee Graham
A ship in port is safe, but that's not what ships are built for.
I wanted freedom, open air, adventure. I found it on the sea.
A smooth sea never made a skilled sailor.
John George Hermanson
