It is not the ship so much as the skillful sailing
that assures the prosperous voyage.
George William Curtis
What can we gain by sailing to the moon if we
able to cross the abyss that separates us from ourselves? This is the most important of all voyages of discovery, and without it, all the rest are not only useless, but disastrous.
If one does not know to which port one is sailing,
no wind is favourable.
It's fear of the unknown. The unknown is what it is.
And to be frightened of it is what sends everybody
scurrying around chasing dreams, illusions, wars, peace, love, hate,
all that - it's all illusion. Unknown is what it is.
Accept that it's unknown and it's plain sailing.
Everything is unknown--then you're ahead of the game.
That's what it is. Right?
You can sail anywhere you want when you
don't know where you are going.
Writing criticism is to writing fiction and poetry as
hugging the shore is to sailing in the open sea.
I don't worry about the storms, I am learning to sail my own ship.
Louisa May Alcott
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed
by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do.
So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor.
Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
