At sea 

"A ship in harbor is safe -- but that is not what ships are for."
~ John A. Shedd

"One does not discover new continents without consenting to lose sight of the shore for a very long time."
~ Andre Gide

"Some things cannot be spoken or discovered until we have been stuck, incapacitated, or blown off course for a while. Plain sailing is pleasant, but you are not going to explore many unknown realms that way."
~ David Whyte

"For a long time it had seemed to me that life was about to begin -- real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way. Something to be got through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid. Then life would begin. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life."
~ Dr. Alfred D'Souza

"There comes a time in each life like a point of fulcrum. At that time you must accept yourself. It is not any more what you will become. It is what you are and always will be."
~ John Fowles

"Make the most of yourself...for that is all there is of you."
