Sailing the open ocean is a real challenge, because it’s life or death.
The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever.
Jacques Yves Cousteau
It is not the ship so much as the skillful sailing that assures the prosperous voyage.
George William Curtis
Sail away from safe harbor. Catch the wind in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
I’m not afraid of storms, for I’m learning how to sail my ship.
Louisa May Alcott
The cure for anything is saltwater – sweat, tears, or the sea.
I keep sailing on in this middle passage. I am sailing into the wind and the dark. But I am doing my best to keep my boat steady and my sails full.
A sailor is an artist whose medium is the wind.
If you want to build a ship, don’t drum up the men to gather wood, divide the work and give orders. Instead, teach them to yearn for the vast and endless sea.
Antoine de Saint Exupery
The goal is not to sail the boat, but rather to help the boat sail herself.
