I find that 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 Wendell Holmes, Sr 1809-1894 -

Lovely quote! here is one of mine that has gotten me through many stormy weather sailing adventures when I wanted to quit and go home.

"I never saw a wild thing sorry for itself. A bird will fall frozen dead from a bough without ever having felt sorry for itself" D.H. Lawrence 1885-1930

I think you two fit the bill ;-)
