Smooth seas do not make skillful sailors. Video
Smooth seas do not make skillful sailors.
Under the wide and starry sky,
Dig the grave and let me lie.
Glad did I live and gladly die,
And I laid me down with a will.
This is the verse you grave for me:
'Here he lies where he longed to be;
Here is the sailor, home from the sea,
And the hunter home from the hill.'
Stevenson, Adlai E.
Skill and confidence are an unconquered army.
Skills are cheap; chemistry is expensive.
Skillful pilots gain their reputation from storms and tempest.
Force has no place where there is need of skill.
Skill is the unified force of experience, intellect and passion in their operation.
A smooth sea never made a skillful mariner.
The young sailor at sea was ordered to climb a mast to adjust a sail during a violent storm. He got halfway up, looked down, got dizzy and sick. An old sailor on deck shouted up to him Look up, son, look up. Young sailor looked up, regained his composure, and completed his mission. Moral: Look ahead, not back.
The sea, the ever renewing sea!
