Wind Quotes

Given the nature of the wind the night of the fire, I find all of these quotes particularly ironic. If you have any quotes that you find with "wind" in them that seem fitting I would love to read them:

“I can't change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination.” Jimmy Dean

“If a man does not know what port he is steering for, no wind is favorable to him” Seneca

“The pessimist complains about the wind; the optimist expects it to change; the realist adjusts the sails.” William Arthur Ward

“Adversity is like a strong wind. It tears away from us all but the things that cannot be torn, so that we see ourselves as we really are.” Arthur Golden

“It is the set of the sails, not the direction of the wind that determines which way we will go.” Jim Rohn

“You must take personal responsibility. You cannot change the circumstances, the seasons, or the wind, but you can change yourself. That is something you have charge of.” Jim Rohn

  1. This one seems fitting for your family:

    "The little reed, bending to the force of the wind, soon stood upright again when the storm had passed over."
    Aesop
