Quotable Thursdays – On storms and sailors

 I love quotes – their messages  are conveyed so succinctly and beautifully.

These brief words often help lift us up and strengthen our resolve.  Short quotes are easy to remember as well, allowing them to become personal mantras – something to whisper to yourself at a crucial moment, reminding yourself to be strong.

I love this quote, it’s especially good if you’re going through a hard time.

“A smooth sea never made a skilled sailor.”

All of those bumps you encounter along the way make you stronger, wiser, and tougher than you were.  And all that experience with the bad times will help you as you continue your journey.

So keep steering through those storms. And who knows, if you’re a writer all the bad you face today can be the basis of future novels. 😉
