A sailing quote!

Picture : Sunrise at Puri.

I find the great thing in this world is not so much where we stand, as in what direction we are moving. To reach the port of heaven, we must sail sometimes with the wind and sometimes against it but we must sail, and not drift, nor lie at anchor.

- Oliver Wendel Holmes

They say Go with the flow..and sometimes I wonder if there is a flow at all and then I realize life is a mix of ebb and flow..but never stops

Ah beautiful!

You are right.. we have to sail against the wind sometimes :) for sailing is not important.. sailing towards the destination is :)

Adi, welcome here. Ah! life by itself is a lesson and believe me there is no think-thank for it. You need to live every moment in it and the best we can do to self is being honest when it’s crunchy.
