Friday Philosophy…Harbors

I think most of us seek a safe harbor or, as I like to call it, “home” during our lives. I thought it would be nice to share some quotes on harbors, and visualize the ocean a little bit on this Friday afternoon.

“If a man knows not what harbor he seeks, any wind is the right wind.” ~ Lucius Annaeus Seneca

“A ship is safe in harbor, but that’s not what ships are for.” ~ William Shedd

“…sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails.” ~ Mark Twain

“If the highest aim of a captain were to preserve his ship, he would keep it in port forever.” ~ Thomas Aquinas

“To reach a port we must sail – sail, not tie at anchor – sail, not drift.” ~ Franklin Roosevelt

“One can advise comfortably from a safe port.” ~ Soren Kierkegaard

Since nearly any reference to harbors/ports keeps me on a nautical theme, I will close with one of my favorite quotes (although no mention of harbors is made):

“And so we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.” ~ F. Scott Fitzgerald

Blessings to you all, and never give up!
