Could not love this more…

I especially love the second stanza! “Tis the set of the soul, that decides its goal…” Heck yeah it is!!

 

One ship drives east and another drives west
With the selfsame winds that blow.
‘Tis the set of the sails,
And Not the gales,
That tell 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 the soul
That decides its goal,
And not the calm or the strife.

~From “The Winds of Fate” by Ella Wheeler Wilcox
