Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!
Four shots ripped into my groin, and I was off on the biggest adventure of my life . . .
-Opening line of Sleep Till Noon by Max Schulman

My father was one of the more literate people I've met. He showed me that book when I was in high school, struggling to make my own writing more interesting. The counterpoise still sparks my imagination.

Your quote is from "The Winds of Fate" by Ella Wheeler Wilcox.

One ship sails east and another sails west
With the self-same winds that blow.
Tis the set of the sail and not the gale
Which determines the way they go.
As the winds of the sea are the ways of fate
As we voyage along through life,
Tis the act of the soul that determines the goal,
And not the calm or the strife.

You’re Sean Lennon?

"...Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans..."
comes from John Lennon’s song "Beautiful Boy (Darling Boy)”, written for Sean, his child with Yoko Ono.

Favourite sailing quote:

"As I sail, I praise God, and care not." Luke Foxe, Hudson Bay explorer.

Favourite political quip:

Lady Astor to Winston Churchill, "Sir, if I was your wife, I wold poison you."
Churchill's response, "Madam, If I was your husband, I would take it."

Never play cards with a guy named "Doc", never eat at a restaurant called "Mom's", and never go to bed with someone who has more problems than you do.

"Those that say it can't be done should get out of the way of those that are doing it" -Chinese Proverb

"...I balanced all, brought all to mind,
The years to come seemed waste of breath,
A waste of breath the years behind
In balance with this life, this death."

-Final lines of the poem "An Irish airman forsees his death" by William Butler Yeats
My interpretation would be: Live now!

"The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings; the inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries." -Winston Churchill.

Oh, he said many great things...
