One ship drives east and the another drives west
with the selfsame winds that blow.
'Tis the set of the sails
and not the gales
which tells us the way to go.
Like the winds of the sea are the ways of fate,
as we voyage along through life:
'tis the set of a sail
that decides its goal,
and not the calm or the strife.

~Ella Wheeler Wilcox
